Voters in the 10th Congressional District benefit from a rare and refreshing phenomenon: They get to choose between two articulate and eminently qualified candidates in Democrat Dan Seals of Wilmette and Republican Bob Dold of Kenilworth. Newcomer Dold runs a family-owned pest control firm and holds a Northwestern MBA. Third-timer Seals is a business consultant who holds a University of Chicago MBA and has taught in Japan. Both men have worked in federal government.

Each is focused on reviving the economy and then tackling the spiraling national debt. Both call themselves fiscal conservatives and social moderates, though Seals won the support of abortion rights groups. We've been impressed with Seals since his first run, repeatedly endorsing him over his primary opponents. He has the detailed plan for a citizenship path for the nation's 12 million illegal immigrants. The Democrat doesn't hesitate to offer reasonable and well-reasoned criticisms of his party and his president. Seals is the stronger fit for this historically independent district and wins our support.
