The QC Times is reporting that Cheri Bustos will file paperwork today with the FEC to run for congressperson of the 17th CD and will make a formal announcement on July 13.
The QCTimes also reports that Porter McNeil won’t run for congress, which I guessed since he was WQAD’s “political analyst” when Obama was here earlier this week.
Schwiebert and Boland were mentioned as possible contenders, but I doubt it since the Hare-Dispatch gave Schweibert a five day run of bloviation on their editorial page, and Boland is just a loser—period!
Conspicuously absent was any mention of the man who used to be at the top of media speculation—Fists Of Fury Senator Mike Jacobs.
It looks like Sonny Corleone Jacobs has finally arrived at the toll booth.
