As happy as I am for my junior U.S. Senator and my Congressman, as of Friday I have neither:
Rep. Rahm Emanuel will resign his House seat Friday.
Emanuel, set to serve as chief of staff to President-elect Barack Obama, sent a letter to Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Monday indicating that he planned to step down at the end of the week.
Yay! Another election! Approximately everyone in the Congressional district is running, too.
