Huggable mayor of downstate Metamora Matt O'Shea dropped out of the race for the Democratic Nomination for Senate, which means all of the remaining candidates are Chicago-based. O'Shea, who was a Republican until he felt "betrayed" by the RNC, has backed former School Board chief Gery Chico, which means the other candidates will have to work even harder to carve out slices for themselves in Chicago. Can't wait until every every immovable object in the city is slathered with campaign signs.
