In this Dec. 15, 2012 file photo, Illinois state Sen. Toi Hutchinson speaks during a candidate presentation at the 2nd Congressional District slating meeting in South Holland, Ill. Hutchinson is one of more than a dozen candidates running in a special primary election Feb. 26 to replace former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. who resigned in November 2012. Like much of the national conversation these days, the race to replace Jackson in Congress has been dominated by one topic: guns. Nearly half of 2nd District voters live on the South Side of Chicago, where some of the nation's worst gun violence has been heavily concentrated. AP Photo
