Two months after Alan Keyes was picked by Illinois Republicans to run against Barack Obama, they're finally having the first of three debates tomorrow night in Springfield at 7pm. So if you were wondering when we were ever going to hear these two candidates debating, you've got your answer. As the presumptive winner (with a 45-point lead over Keyes in the polls), Obama is not only campaigning in Illinois, but is also donating money to, and speaking on behalf of, Democratic candidates in key states for this year's election, as the Washington Post reports (registration required).
