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.

Absent Ditka’s entrance into the race, Republicans have almost zero chance of keeping the seat of retiring Sen. Pete Fitzgerald (R.-Ill.).
