Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) says he’s ready to take the place of Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate should voters send the Democratic senator to the White House on Nov. 4.       

       The choice, however, is up to Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who is in charge of appointing a successor to the state’s U.S. Senate seat if Obama wins the presidential election.      

       “If Senator Obama wins — and I’m optimistic that he will — I indeed would be honored and humbled to succeed him in the U.S. Senate. But, in the end, the decision rests with Gov. Blagojevich, and I’m confident that he’ll make an appointment in the best interest of the state as well as the nation,” Jackson said in a statement.      

       Jackson Jr. is currently the co-chairman of Obama’s presidential campaign. He also came to Obama’s defense when his father, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, famously suggested doing symbolic bodily harm to him.
