DescriptionSen. Roland Burris (D-Illl.) will not run for election in 2010--a not surprising decision given that Burris, appointed by ousted Gov. Blagojevich to fill the seat vacated by Barack Obama had never created a political organization, raised virtually no campaign cash, and faced controversy from the start.

Burris' decision, reported by my Sun-Times colleague Michael Sneed, was fueled in large part by his anemic fund-raising efforts, which will become public next week. Burris will make it official during a speech he will deliver in Chicago Friday afternoon.
