State Dems Won't Pick Lt. Gov Next Week

    Some of these ideas are just nuts.

    The Illinois State Democratic Central Commitee will not pick a Lieutenant Governor candidate during a meeting as planned next week, according to a spokesperson.

    What that means for the Democratic ticket this election is anybody's guess.

    The online selection process is apparently continuing for now -- "it's evolving," said Steve Brown, the spokesman for Speaker Mike Madigan -- but candidates will no longer appear before the committee on Monday.

    There won't be a selection on Tuesday, either.

    Asked whether and when the Lt. Gov. will be selected, Brown only replied: "We'll let you know."
