Former U.S. Rep. Debbie Halvorson announced Sunday night that she will run in a special election to replace U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who resigned last week.
Halvorson ran unsuccessfully against Jackson in the March 20 primary, garnering about 24 percent of the total votes to 58 percent for Jackson. Halvorson represented the 11th Congressional District from 2009 to 2011. Before that, she served as a state senator for 12 years.
