Tom Kacich: Candidates for Frerichs seat include minister

According to the News-Gazette, An update on the process to replace Mike Frerichs in the state Senate: Naomi Jakobsson doesn’t want the position but several other people do.

Jakobsson’s name has been floated as a possible contender to fill the remaining two years on the Champaign Democrat’s state Senate term, once he moves up to the office of state treasurer next month.

“You know what?” she said Tuesday. “If it were a two-year term without having to run (in 2016) I would do it.”

But the Champaign and Vermilion County Democratic Party chairmen who will name Frerichs’ successor — Al Klein and Frank Wright — want someone who not only will move into the 52nd District Senate seat for two years, but will run for election in 2016.

“Beyond those two years I don’t really have it in me,” Jakobsson said.
