From Eric Dondero: 16 candidates total. 14 of the 16 are Democrats, with one Green Party candidate on the ballot. And then there's Republican Paul McKinley. Meet Paul, (from his Facebook page):
It's time to take on the Chicago Machine and restore family values, respect for the Constitution, and prosperity to our 2nd district.In fairness, there are other GOP candidates running. Here's a great video just released, the Chicago Republican Party hosted a debate of a number of the candidates. Interestingly, they are all African-Americans.
