Jonathan Jackson: I'm not running for Jackson Jr.'s vacant seat

December 18, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Jackson said he was considering the seat but decided against it.

Jackson Jr. resigned in November, citing ongoing treatment for bipolar disorder.

On Saturday, Democratic Party leaders heard from those interested in the seat, but could not decide on a single candidate to support.

More than a dozen contenders are eyeing the seat.
