DescriptionWASHINGTON--With the potential of Assistant Veterans Affairs Secretary Tammy Duckworth running for the House from the new Illinois 8th District, I asked Raja Krishnamoorthi--already in the contest--on Wednesday if he would step aside for the better known candidate and the answer for now is no.

"I'm in this race," he told me. "I have great respect for her and other potential candidates, but I am in this race and what I need to focus on are the issues voters care about right now, such as the economy and the middle class, medicare and public education I also am focusing on what it it would take for me to win."
