Jay Footlik announced he is running for Congress against Republican incumbent Mark Kirk in the 10th district on Illinois.
A Special Assistant in the Clinton White House, Footlik served as the president’s liaison to the American Jewish community. In 2004, he served in the Lieberman campaign and then as an advisor to Kerry/Edwards.
Footlik would seem to be following in the steps of another Clinton aide – Rahm Emanuel – who has gone on to become a congressman from Illinois.
A New Rahm?
