Ditka Says No to U.S. Senate Run: "Former Chicago Bears Coach Mike Ditka said Wednesday night that he won't run for the U.S. Senate, leaving Illinois Republicans still desperate for a replacement candidate.
Ditka made his announcement outside his Chicago restaurant.
Ditka says he doesn't know what he would do on the Senate floor if he got into a confrontation with someone he didn't appreciate or didn't appreciate him.
He says he thought about running, but then said to himself to 'get his head on straight and really think about it.'
There had been a growing sentiment that Ditka was perhaps the Illinois GOP's best shot at holding onto a seat that will be vacated in January when Senator Peter Fitzgerald retires.
A string of Republican leaders had lined up behind Ditka in recent days"
