Despite illness, Rep. Jesse Jackson on track for re-election
CHICAGO (MCT) — Battling mental illness and personal financial troubles, Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr., D-Ill., is a heavy favorite for re-election Nov. 6 despite a surreal campaign in which he has been absent for almost four months.
Jackson, 47, who disclosed this summer that he has bipolar depression and has undergone weeks of hospitalization, is convalescing in Washington and meeting occasionally with aides. He has been absent from the House of Representatives since June 8.
