Have you been following the State's Attorney race?

The incumbent Cook County State's Attorny Dick Devine is retiring at the end of his term. There is a wide open race on the Democratic side and there's only one Republican, Cook County Commissioner Tony Peraica. You may have heard of some of the competitors.
