People Lining Up to Replace Jackson Jr. in House


There’s a long list of possible contenders to run in a special election to replace Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr., who resigned this week.

 

Jackson just won re-election to a new term earlier this month, so whoever wins the upcoming special election will finish out almost all of the full two-year term.

 

Sam Adam, Jr…. who represented former governor Rod Blagojevich… has expressed interest in a run.

 

So has former Congressman Debbie Halvorson, who lost to Jackson in the Democratic primary last March.

 

Jackson’s wife Sandy and brother Jonathan have also been mentioned as possible candidates, but neither one has commented publicly on the possibility.
