Biss Out Of Comptroller’s Race

(Chicago, IL) — The race for Illinois Comptroller isn’t until next year, but the field is already thinning. State Senator Daniel Biss is dropping out. Biss yesterday said he wants to avoid a Democratic primary battle. Chicago City Clerk Susana Mendoza is now considered the Democratic front-runner to take on Leslie Munger, who was appointed to replace Judy Baar Topinka.
