From the Lincoln Courier:
Critics say Obama — like Keyes, an African American — is too liberal to represent Illinois. But former Gov. James R. Thompson, a Republican who supported abortion and equal rights for women, said Obama "looks pretty moderate to me" compared to the ultra-conservative GOP candidate.
"I’m just not voting for Alan Keyes," Thompson, an at-large delegate, said. He declined to say who he will vote for Nov. 2.
