Hutchinson Drops Out After Withering Attacks from Bloomberg

Illinois state Sen. Toi Hutchinson (D) is expected to drop out of the 2nd congressional district special Democratic primary and back former state Rep. Robin Kelly (D) in the contest to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. in Congress, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The move shakes up the Democratic field just nine days before the Feb. 26 primary election.

Capitol Fax: "The reasons are many, including Mayor Bloomberg's decision to point his massive super PAC right at Hutchinson while backing rival Robin Kelly."

Bloomberg has attacked Hutchinson for her support for the National Rifle Association.
