Chicago Congressman Luis Gutierrez says he would like to replace Barack Obama in the Senate and that he has talked to the governor about the possible appointment.However, Gutierrez says it's not his top goal in life.

"My priority isn't being in the House or being in the Senate. My priority is comprehensive immigration reform," the Chicago representative said.

Under law, the governor appoints Obama's replacement. Blagojevich says he's not interested in the job himself.
