Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon is set to fly around the state to announce plans about her political future. The Carbondale Democrat sent an email to supporters late Monday, saying she'd release "very exciting news" about her campaign tomorrow. For five months, Simon has kept mum on her plans for next year, saying only that she'll seek another statewide office. She hasn't said what position she might seek, but has touted her background as a former county prosecutor and law professor. Simon's campaign manager has said she's been interested in comptroller, a position now held by Republican Judy Baar Topinka. Simon's set to kick off her tour tomorrow in Chicago before visiting Springfield and Carbondale.
