Jesse White Going for Re-Election as Sec. of State

The Democrat launched his bid for a third term today by saying he will run on his record of cleaning up corruption, improving public service and making Illinois roads safer.

White says he inherited an office that was under a cloud of corruption. He says he's changed that by banning the practice of soliciting campaign contributions from employees and by hiring an independent inspector general.

He also says reforms he implemented have reduced long lines at driver's facilities.

Republican Dan Rutherford is also running for the office, and he says lines are still too long and service can be improved.

White won all 102 Illinois counties in the last election.
