The scoop from Washington

Reps. Davis, Rush visit Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.: Their report

| No Comments

Reps Bobby Rush and Danny Davis visited their fellow Chicago Democrat, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. at his Washington home--and will report back later on Monday. Jackson, out of commission since June--dealing with bi-polar illness and depression--is returning to Mayo Clinic for further treatment. Rush and Davis will hold a press conference at O'Hare Airport at 6 p.m. Chicago time to "speak with reporters about the visit and issues of national concern around mental health." I would expect the two to also make a pitch for Jackson's re-election. Jackson on Friday launched a robo-call to his constitutients asking them for patience as he recovers. He is not expected to surface before election day. Early voting in Illinois started on Monday.
