Will County Auditor Duffy Blackburn — a Democrat — tells the Chicago Sun-Times he’s mounting a campaign for the office of Comptroller, positioning himself for a possible fight against Republican Judy Baar Topinka.
Assuming he wins the Democratic primary — should there be one — Blackburn will take on one of the few popular Republican statewide office holders.
Blackburn, who is in his second term as Will County Auditor, plans to jump in with the help of U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, who is to serve as a co-chair on his campaign.
