NBC Chicago: Trotter's out?

Key word in this news is sources. From Ward Room:
State Sen. Donne Trotter, once considered the front-runner in the race to replace Jesse Jackson Jr., has decided not to run for the seat, sources tell NBC Chicago.

Trotter has released his pollster and begun notifying supporters of his decision, sources say.

Calls to Trotter's office and to his attorney, Thomas Durkin, for comment on Thursday were unsuccessful.
Soooo, is he out because of his unfortunate arrest earlier this month for possessing a gun at O'Hare Airport? Or are there other factors at play here?

He was supposed to be the favorite in this race, and he had some support among Cook County Committeemen when they held a slating session. However, the committeemen decided not to endorse anyone in the race for the 2nd Congressional District.
