So there was a primary yesterday in the Illinois 2nd congressional district to fill Jesse Jackson, Jr's seat. Robin Kelly won the democratic primary with the help of a 2.2 million dollar donation from New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg.
What the heck is Bloomberg doing helping a Chicago democrat?
Anyway, Kelly will face a man the Tribune describes as an ex convict and states the way it will go: "Republican voters are suggesting the 2nd Congressional District replace one felon with another after picking ex-convict Paul McKinley as the candidate to run for the seat recently ceded by former U.S. Rep Jesse Jackson, Jr."
Oh Chicago politics, it never changes.
