Congressman Jerry Costello says Brad Harriman is the man who'll best fill his shoes. The former Metro-East educator is just one of three Democratic candidates looking to replace Costello, who is retiring at the end of the term. Costello says Harriman is a working class family man with a hard work ethic.

Harriman, the former St. Clair County regional superintendent of schools, has also picked up the support of the AFL-CIO and will square off against two other Democrats in the March 20th election. Four Republicans have also filed to run for the seat.
