Ill. Sen. Donne Trotter out of jail, still running for Congress

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Illinois State Senator Donne Trotter is out of jail - and he said he's still in the race for Congress.

Trotter was arrested at O'Hare International Airport Wednesday, when police said he tried to bring a gun onto a plane headed for Washington.

Police said Trotter told TSA agents he had worked as a security guard the previous night and forgot he had the gun in his carry-on bag.

Trotter is running for Jesse Jackson Jr.'s old seat, to represent Illinois' 2nd district on Capitol Hill.

Trotter told FOX 32 News Thursday night that he is humbled by all the support he has received since his arrest.
