Illinipundit going negative.

Illinipundit is running continuing negative attacks on Mike Frerichs. Of 54 posts since this race began, 21 are either positive on Judy Myers, or neutral. A whopping 33 are negative against Frerichs. That's 61% negative attacks. It also appears that the republicans went negative far before Mike's recent advertisements. They go all the way back to June of last year. Does this mean that Judy is in trouble, is that why they are so fiercely attacking a great guy like Mike Frerichs. Is it because they are afraid of him? I think its because this race is a lot tighter than they assume, they rarely post about Naomi Jakobsson anymore, mainly because they know she is going to win. Thoughts?
