Two veteran Illinois politicians want more time in office.
Secretary of State Jesse White announced Thursday that he would seek a record fifth term in office. White turns 80 next year and hints that a fifth term would likely be his last… something he also said about his fourth term when he ran last time.
Meanwhile, Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka has also formally kicked off her re-election bid. [Topinka will be a guest Monday on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show.”]
