Third black senator since Reconstruction—guaranteed?

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the GOP might tap Alan Keyes to run against Barack Obama. I didn’t realize Keyes was from Illinois. Then again, Hillary isn’t from New York.

I don’t know much about Keyes except that he ran for president in 2000, when I remember hearing that he was pretty far out in right field, i.e., a nut job. Regardless of his politics, the Illinois senate race should be more interesting once Barack has an opponent.
