Candidates can file petitions for Jackson's seat
CHICAGO (AP) — The first batch of candidates hoping to replace former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. turned in paperwork Thursday to the Illinois State Board of Elections.
More than half a dozen Democrats filed candidacy petitions with signatures required for the Feb. 26 primary. The special election for the heavily Democratic 2nd District seat is April 9.
The candidates on the primary ballot include former state Rep. Robin Kelly, Chicago Alderman Anthony Beale, state Sen. Toi Hutchinson, state Sen.-elect Napoleon Harris and former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds.
