Cook Co. Democrats to endorse candidate to replace Jackson

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Cook County Democratic Party will meet this coming weekend to endorse a candidate in the race to replace Jesse Jackson Jr.

More than a dozen people are running to represent Illinois' 2nd district in Congress, but Democrats said they will only back one candidate.

Each potential candidate will get four minutes to deliver his or her pitch on Saturday.

Jackson resigned from Congress last month, citing health reasons. He's also under federal investigation for possible misuse of campaign funds.
