Hot off my Twitter feed, from Chicago News Bench.
CNB’s next tweet reads, “Hot Tip: Insiders are telling me that Giannoulias is considering pulling out of the race against Mark Kirk.”

UPDATE: Some days I’m slower than others. It only just now clicked that the Senate seat in question once belonged to one… Barack Obama.
