At the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia some of the attention given the national race for President has shifted in Illinois to who the Democrats might pick to run for Governor.


A possibility is Chris Kennedy, the son of Robert Kennedy, is a Chicago businessman and one time Chairman of the University Of Illinois Board Of Trustees.


Kennedy has been moving about the state to talk to top Democrat politicians about possibly running. But in Philadelphia he wanted no part of the Governor talk, at least with the press.

Kennedy hastily left an Illinois delegation breakfast but was followed by a few members of the press. He then had this awkward and terse exchange with FOX 2 in Chicago.



Kennedy did meet with a few reporters later in day and said no one should be bullied into talking to the press.
