Still No Takers For State House District 82

With less than 24 hours until qualifying ends for the vacant 82nd district state House seat, the Secretary of State's office says no candidate has signed up to run in the special Democratic primary.

Does anybody want to run?

[UPDATE]: I just visited the DeKalb County Democratic Party's web page, and found a crop of potential candidates -- the six county Democratic committee members who live in the 82nd district:

  • Charles "Mike" Hacke
  • Martin McConaughy
  • Renee Vorbach
  • Ann Abramowitz
  • John Sawyer
  • Mary Lou McClosky
These six DeKalb County Democratic Committee members need to get together and figure out who's going to run before noon Wednesday.
