FLOSSMOOR - What does the Mayor of the Big Apple have to do with filling indicted former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr's 2nd Congressional District seat in the Second City's southern parts?
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Independence USA Super PAC has dumped hundreds of thousands of dollars into ads attacking Democrat special primary candidates Debbie Halvorson and more recently, State Senator Toi Hutchinson. Both candidates received an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association, an organization whose efforts Mayor Bloomberg staunchly opposes.
Sunday morning Hutchinson dropped out and endorsed former Democrat State Rep. Robin Kelly. That leaves Kelly and Halvorson as the top runners in the once 17-way 2nd CD Democrat primary.
