Kelly Frontrunner In 2nd Congressional Race
(Chicago, IL) -- Robin Kelly is the front runner to replace Jesse Jackson, Junior in Congress. She beat out 14 other Democrats in the primary election yesterday. Kelly will square off against the Republican primary winner on April 9th, though the GOP race was too close to call as of early this morning. Political experts say Kelly will likely win the seat because the District is very highly Democratic.
Gay Marriage Bill Passes Committee
(Springfield, IL) -- Gay couples in Illinois get another win in the fight to legalize same sex marriage. The bill made it out of committee with a six to five vote last night. It now heads to the house floor, where its fate is still up in the air. One state rep voted for the proposal last night but says he won't likely do the same when it reaches the floor.
Concealed Carry Bill Drafted In Six Hour Debate
(Springfield, IL) -- Concealed carry is proving to be a very emotional topic. State reps drafted a bill yesterday, tacking on 14 amendments during a six hour floor debate. Many of the amendments outline where people will and will not be allowed to carry a gun once the law is finally passed. Republicans were in an uproar over many of the amendments,
claiming Democrats were trying to skirt around a court order which requires lawmakers to get a law on the books. They say the bill is too restrictive because it would only allow people to carry guns on sidewalks and in their cars.
State Senator Loses Bid For Mayor
(Waukegan, IL) -- State Senator Terry Link will not be doing double duty in Illinois government. The Democratic lawmaker lost a bid to become Mayor of Waukegan. He finished third in the primary race yesterday. Clerk Wayne Motley came out on top and will face the current mayor on April 9th.

A special meeting has been called at 7:00 tonight but if not deal is reached, teachers will walk out and classes will be cancelled tomorrow.
