WMBD/WYZZ – ILLINOIS- Illinois Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias is reportedly opening his exploratory bid for the U.S. Senate. The "Chicago Sun-Times" reports Giannoulias is running no matter the election scenario or the other contenders involved. The seat is currently held by embattled democrat Roland Burris, who was appointed by former Governor Rod Blagojevich. Former U.S. Commerce Secretary William Daley, the brother of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, floated his name as a possible democratic candidate last week.
