Illinois Democrats are getting a political do-over. They are picking a new candidate for lieutenant governor after the primary winner dropped out due to a checkered past.

Gov. Pat Quinn has the rare opportunity to help pick his running mate, but refused to say Monday who was on his short list of potential partners.

Meanwhile, the politicking has begun in earnest among those seeking a chance in November at the state's No. 2 job.

The spot opened up when Scott Lee Cohen announced over the weekend he would leave the ticket.

It became widely known after Cohen's win that his ex-wife accused him of abuse in divorce papers and he had been accused of holding a knife to the throat of a former girlfriend.
