State Senate Hopeful Employs Rap Bio

If Don Wilson loses his bid for Illinois state senate, then he might want to consider a fall-back career as a viral video producer.

The Wilson campaign's latest clip is low budget and corny yet charmingly shameless in its ploy to reach voters in the north suburban 30th district, represented by Democratic incumbent Terry Link since 1997.

It's got a hip-hop soundtrack wherein a rapper delivers pro-Wilson flow, spouting such lyrics as: "He's a Republican that believes in the land of the brave and the home of the free." And: "He never had much growing up and bounced from house to house, taken in my friends' parents, struggling no doubt/now he has two daughters and a wife, married for 18 years, doing it right."
