CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A number of Democrats have announced they'll run for the congressional seat formerly filled by Jesse Jackson Jr. But Republican CNN analyst Lenny McCallister has just joined in the running.

McCallister threw his hat in the ring earlier this month. He remains the only Republican against a double-digit field of Democrats.

The special election to choose the next representative of Illinois' 2nd district will be held Feb. 36.

Winners from both parties will go on to the April 6 general election.
