Illinois' Secretary of State Changes Tune on Reelection

Apr 18, 2016

Jesse White is keeping the door open to running for office again.

The long-time Secretary of State said last year he wouldn’t run for re-election. But in a recent interview with Illinois Public Radio - the 81-year-old White said the Democratic Party may still draft him to run.

A party spokesman said he doesn’t know of a formal movement to draft White.

But he says Democrats would be well-served if White considered another campaign.
