7 People Have Announced for Jesse Jr. Seat… and Counting

7 UP. Eight people have already announced they are running for Jesse Jackson, Jr’s seat. The “child please” award goes to former Rep. Mel Reynolds. The WTF award goes to former NFL player Napoleon Harris — who just ran for the State Senate, hasn’t even been sworn in yet, and is now running for Congress. Will a crazy-ass vote split place Halvorson in? Who knows. But one thing is for sure: Bobby Rush’s advice telling everyone to “cool their jets” has been completely ignored.

This is who is running so far:

1. State Sen. Donne Trotter
2. Fmr. Rep. Debbie Halvorson
3. State Sen.-elect Napoleon Harris
4. Ald. Anthony Beale
5. Robin Kelly
6. Fmr. Rep. Mel Reynolds
7. State Sen. Toi Hutchinson
