Roland Burris

Burris failed to win the nomination for governor in 1994, and  then ran unsuccessfully for mayor of Chicago in 1995. He ran for governor again in 1998 (and lost again),  then tried once more in 2002, this time facing then-Rep. Rod Blagojevich. The campaign started early; in 2001, Burris and Blagojevich met while seeking votes at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.
