Tio Hardiman Announces Run for 2016 US Senate Race in Illinois

In Illinois, we have a proud history of repeat candidates.  The latest is Tio Hardiman who ran against Governor Pat Quinn in the Democrat primary this spring.  Now, he's got his eyes on a larger prize:  the United States Senate nomination in 2016.

WJBC has the details on Tio Hardiman's announcement:
Former Democratic candidate for governor Tio Hardiman of Hillside has formally announced he’ll be running for the U.S. Senate in 2016. 
The primary for that race is still 20 months away, but Hardiman believes beginning the campaign now will give him an edge over other potential rivals. 
"No one else is talking about running. Michelle Obama mentioned that she may run, but she decided she’s not going to run. I’m not sure if (Illinois Attorney General) Lisa Madigan is gonna run for U.S. Senate," Hardiman said, "so Tio Hardiman may be the only talk of the town when it comes down to running for the U.S. Senate against Mark Kirk right now."
Our take?
