Scott Lee Cohen, the former candidate for governor and lieutenant governor, is now interested in an Illinois Senate seat.

Secretary of State Jesse White says a group of Chicago ward committeemen will meet Monday to choose between Cohen and other candidates who want to replace Rickey Hendon .

Hendon resigned from the State Senate last month.

Cohen lost his bid for governor. He ran as an independent after giving up his nomination for lieutenant governor. He stepped aside over revelations about his personal life.
