An election season of unprecedented spending on negative advertising is coming to an end. How does it rank? And what does it mean for the future?

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler, Amanda Vinicky and Brian Mackey, and guest Mike Riopell, of the Daily Herald.

Brian Mackey formerly reported on state government and politics for NPR Illinois and a dozen other public radio stations across the state. Before that, he was A&E editor at The State Journal-Register and Statehouse bureau chief for the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
Amanda Vinicky moved to Chicago Tonight on WTTW-TV PBS in 2017.
The former director of the Public Affairs Reporting (PAR) graduate program is Professor Charles N. Wheeler III, a veteran newsman who came to the University of Illinois at Springfield following a 24-year career at the Chicago Sun-Times.
