| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Two candidates are already facing petition challenges in the race for 2nd Congressional District -- Anthony Beale and Joyce Washington, according to the state board of elections.
Beale filed his candidacy on Jan. 3 and Washington filed on Jan. 7 -- the deadline. They are two of 17 Democrats who are vying for Jesse Jackson Jr.'s old seat.

Jackson resigned in November amid a federal investigation and health issues. His wife, Sandi, resigned her aldermanic post last week.
