State Senator Bill Haine (D-Alton) has announced he will run for re-election.  Haine says he feels he is still capable of representing the 56th legislative district effectively, and has expressed a continued commitment to solving the budget crisis and protecting working families.

And he says as the chair of the downstate caucus, he can offer a perspective that is different from the governor and the four legislative leaders.
