A former Chicago alderman will challenge current Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich in the Democratic primary.

Edwin Eisendrath officially announced his candidacy Sunday. Eisendrath told about 100 supporters that he will clean up state government. He is accusing Blagojevich of failing to keep his promise to end corruption in Springfield. The challenge could potentially force Blagojevich to dip into his huge campaign fund earlier than he had planned. Blagojevich has an estimated $14.4 million ready to spend on re-election and had been hoping to gain the Democratic nomination.
