CHICAGO (CBS) — Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced he’s seeking a record-breaking fifth term in office, and for the moment, he’s running without any opposition.
WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports, at age 79, White said this might be his run for office, but he’s certainly not thinking of slowing down.
“I’m a former military person, and I used to jump out of perfectly good airplanes. You never jump out of an airplane and stop halfway; it’s all the way,” he said. “I also believe, too, having served 10 years in the military, that when there is a mission before you, you see it from its beginning to its conclusion.”
