Ditka for Senate?

The Washington Times reports that former Chicago Bears football coach Mike Ditka (R.) is seriously considering a run for Illinois’ open U.S. Senate seat. “If you’re going to tell me I couldn’t be a better senator than Ted Kennedy (D.-Mass.), I could be,” Ditka said.

Ditka would replace Jack Ryan (R.), who won the nomination this spring but dropped out after embarrassing materials were released from his divorce custody files. Absent Ditka’s entrance into the race, Republicans have almost zero chance of keeping the seat of retiring Sen. Pete Fitzgerald (R.-Ill.).
