Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka then intimated that he might enter the race. 24 Somewhat surprisingly, he expressed interest in the race, with his high profile and name recognition raising Republican hopes. He was serious enough to meet with Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee head Senator George Allen of Virginia and State Party Chair Topinka, before abruptly pulling out on July 14. 25 After missing their self-imposed July 16 deadline, the Republicans experienced continued frustration as they searched for a candidate.

Although his victory was not as large as Obama’s, he did better than his opponents in terms of statewide appeal, winning 83 of the state’s 102 counties, including all but two with populations over 100,000 (Kane and St. Clair). ’’4 Given Ryan’s background as an inner-city teacher, his general election strategy emphasized reaching out to minority voters and social moderates.

Potential candidates entered and exited the stage almost too quickly for the voting audience to keep track of them.

After a largely self-destructive campaign, Keyes endured a record-setting loss to Obama in November.
