Chicago Sun-Times Endorses Quigley

Cook County Commisioner Mike Quigley has picked up the endorsement of the Chicago Sun-Times in the race for Rahm Emanuel's former Illinois House seat.

From the editorial:
The Chicago Sun-Times endorses Cook County Commissioner Mike Quigley for the Democratic primary on March 3, which in this heavily Democratic district is effectively the election.

So many politicians promise to be reformers, then deliver so little -- or turn out to be outright crooks -- that it has become a running joke on the public.

Look no further than the man who was once the congressman from the 5th District and now is our former governor, Rod Blagojevich.

Quigley, 50, is that rare candidate who promises reform -- and delivers.

He's the real deal.

He has proved himself at the County Board and deserves a shot at proving himself in Congress.
