Former Bears coach Mike Ditka makes an endorsement in a suburban mayor's race, backing his former player Steve McMichael.

"I think this man will honestly make a conscientious effort to serve the people who put him in office," Ditka said. The two teamed up for a fundraiser Friday night at Harry Carray's.

McMichael was a member of the 1985 Super Bowl Champion Bears.

McMichael is running against incumbent John Noak, who says the endorsement from Ditka is "no surprise."

The election is April 9.
