CHICAGO (AP) Retiring Illinois Senate President Emil Jones, a Democrat from Chicago, mentioned his interest in the position Friday during a taping of WBBM Radio's "At Issue'' program.

Gov. Rod Blagojevich will select Obama's replacement, and Jones
is a longtime ally of the Democratic governor.

Jones, who is black, says the vacancy should be filled by an
African-American.

Blagojevich has said he'd like to make an announcement before
Christmas.
