Chicago Cubs legend and Hall of Famer, Ernie Banks, has passed away at the young age of 83. Ernie Banks was an 11-time All-Star and a two-time National League Most Valuable Player (1958-59). He hit 512 home runs and had 1,636 RBIs during his great career with the Cubs, but will forever be remembered for his indomitable spirit and eternal optimism. #ErnieBanks #MrCub

ICYMI: I am focused on serving the constituents of the 2nd Illinois' Congressional district, but I am doing my due diligence and exploring whether there is a path to run for U.S. Senate in 2016. I have the experience at all levels of government, both elected and appointed, and believe I would be a strong candidate to represent Illinois in the Senate.
