Feigenholtz wants to move to Senate

Monday, Nov 18, 2019

* I told subscribers about this on Friday morning

The heir apparent is already in line to fill the soon-to-be vacated seat of longtime state Sen. John Cullerton.

Within hours of Cullerton’s shocking announcement at the end of the fall veto session in Springfield Thursday that he plans to retire in January, signs were already pointing to state Rep. Sara Feigenholtz to replace her fellow North Side Democrat in the Illinois Senate.

Feigenholtz — who worked as Cullerton’s district chief of staff for more than a decade dating back to his time in the Illinois House of Representatives before she was first elected in 1994 — said Saturday she has contacted Democratic ward committeemen who will eventually vote to appoint Cullerton’s replacement once he steps down. […]

And as for who might eventually take Feigenholtz’s House seat, it’s too soon to say who might eventually land in that portion of the legislative game of musical chairs. Feigenholtz said she’ll still file to run for the House in the March election.

    That’s a lot of seniority to give up.

    After Madigan yanked her leadership post and shipped her back to the Stratton, she essentially reverted to being a freshman.

    Oh, sure, seniority, but when you see some others getting ahead or lots of attention, moving to another place and being on a bigger playing field sounds good to me.

    You notice the national dems dont view serving in Springfield as much of a bonus. This is pretty much the terminal career.

    === national dems dont view serving in Springfield as much of a bonus===

    LOL

    Do you not remember Obama? Also, there is the Democratic Whip in the US Senate and the DCCC chair in the US House.

    Her appointment seems like a given, but who replaces her in that House seat, is a very interesting what-if. Lots of potential names in the mix, I bet.

    District Voter, please tell me you meant “glad-handler”, because “gland handler” is a fairly explicit and sexist remark to be throwing around.


  8. - Juvenal - Monday, Nov 18, 19 @ 12:37 pm:

    I want to give “District Voter” the benefit of the doubt that it was an auto correct error, but the epithet “gland handler” surely violates the terms of service of this blog and should be deleted.


  9. - LoyalVirus - Monday, Nov 18, 19 @ 12:58 pm:

    TY, Perrid- was wondering if this was purposeful or a Spoonerism…


  10. - Shytown - Monday, Nov 18, 19 @ 3:18 pm:

    I’d run the heck over to the Senate and never look back.
