M08, two local Republicans declare for U.S. Senate

Sen. Richard "Dick" Durbin is up for re-election in 2008.

On Monday, La Grange physician Steve Sauerberg declare his candidacy for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. See Topix.net search for media and blog coverage.

Politics1.com has a list of candidates who have expressed intent to run. (State Senator Bill Brady is listed as a potential candidate.) On the list of candidates is Jim Rowe, who challenged State Senator Don Harmon in 2006. Rowe lives in Franklin Park.

I last saw Rowe at a fund raiser for Tony Peraica's campaign for President of the County Board. Rowe engaged in dirty campaigning. He scared seniors and accused Harmon of supporting sex offenders. Rowe also made the inaccurate statement Harmon endorsed Topinka over Blagojevich. At the Peraica fund raiser Rowe really thought he was going to beat Harmon.

I also discovered Anthony "Andy" Martin is more of a kook than I thought. Apparent the Illinois Supreme Court has denied Martin admittance to the bar because of filing a hundred law suits with little or no merit in federal court. See Chicago Tribune (John Chase and Rick Pearson).
