Congressman Luis Gutierrez reneges on announced retirement

Capitol Fax Blog (Rich Miller) quotes an unnamed Capitol Fax subscriber:
US Rep. Luis Gutierrez just announced, at the Illinois Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, that he has reversed his prior retirement plans, and will indeed run for re-election to represent Illinois’s 4th Congressional District.

I've heard rumors Gutierrez wants to go into real estate after leaving politics. I assume Gutierrez didn't make as much progress setting-up his next career as he hoped.

Gutierrez's move jerks around the politicians who wanted to run to be his successor.

But, as I suggested in the comments of the Capitol Fax Blog, one of them could probably win Cook County Recorder of Deeds with a diligent campaign.
