Doctors in this part of Illinois who had never been politically active have been telling their patients that the medical community is in crisis and asking them to vote Karmeier. Most of these doctors will probably never be organized politically, but right now, they are angry and worried -- worried about their own livlihoods and about their communities. Most of them could move to another State, sign up with a clinic there, work less, and make more money. They don't want to do that. This election tells them that people are starting to support them.
