April 18, 2009

Could another Hastert be in line for a run at the 14th Congressional District seat?

Ethan Hastert, the 31-year-old son of former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, confirmed Friday that he has started meeting local leaders and introducing himself as a potential candidate. He said he has made no decisions yet.

Hastert's father held the far west suburban seat for nearly 21 years, serving as speaker from 1999 to 2007.

Ethan Hastert is an associate at Mayer Brown LLP in Chicago. He worked for more than a year in then-Vice President Dick Cheney's office.
