From Booker Rising: readers are aware of Lenny McAllister. Well, the conservative Republican is running for the U.S. Congress:
"Nationally-renowned political commentator and community advocate Lenny McAllister announced today that he will run for the seat in Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District currently vacant after the resignation of Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. McAllister calls for the people of the district to look beyond career politicians and accept a candidate who can reach across the aisle for bipartisan accountability and accessibility.
'The Second Congressional District – like much of America – finds itself at a set of critical crossroads. In this time of economic crisis, political upheaval, community endangerment, and partisan gridlock, the constituents need leadership beyond limiting labels,' said McAllister."
