Illinois U.S. Senators Looking at U.S. Attorney Candidates.
Illinois Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk are discussing candidates selected by a local bipartisan panel to become Chicago's next U.S. Attorney. Four attorneys have been named the panel, and the senators are expected to come up with at least two names to send to the President for consideration to replace Patrick Fitzgerald. Durbin and Kirk are not bound by the panel's choices and could select someone entirely different.
