“Twenty-six file for Emanuel seat”

by thoughtfulconservative

From TheHill.com

Fifteen Democrats, six Republicans and five Green Party candidates will compete in a March 3 primary, with the winners facing off in an April 7 general election.

The Democrat who wins the primary will be heavily favored in the district, which stretches from the shores of Lake Michigan to the suburbs around O’Hare Airport. Barack Obama won nearly three in four votes in the district.

Democrats with an early head start include state Reps. Sara Feigenholtz and John Fritchey, Chicago Alderman Patrick O’Connor and Cook County Commissioner Mike Quigley. Some expect attorney Tom Geoghegan to compete seriously for the seat.

Twenty-six! Wow.
