The lady, by the way, is Major Tammy Duckworth, she's standing for Congress in Illinois and here's another picture of her here:

According to Political Wire, she's just ahead in the polls:

In IL-6, Tammy Duckworth (D) edges Peter Roskam (R), 43% to 38%, in the race to replace retiring Rep. Henry Hyde(R-IL).
