CHICAGO (AP) — After two weeks of talk and speculation, the race to replace Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley has truly begun to take shape.

Two people close to Dart told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart has decided to run for mayor.

Dart received national headlines for suing Craigslist and halting court-ordered evictions.

Dart is the first candidate with enough city-wide stature to be a formidable contender. He also has experience in Chicago's hardball politics.

Both people who spoke to the AP said they heard from Dart directly, and the sheriff told them he's in the race. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they're not authorized to talk about Dart's plans and didn't want to pre-empt his announcement.
