Could Vallas Pull A Bloomberg To Win Illinois?

Arena_p2_vallasChicago Magazine says that NOLA superintendent Paul Vallas might return to Illinois politics as a Republican candidate for Governor in 2010 (Schooling Democrats).

"Less important than which party you are running in is what you are running for," Vallas, now the schools superintendent in New Orleans, told Chicago in an interview. "I've been a lifelong Democrat, but when I ran last time, it's not like I had a lot of support from establishment Democrats. I had a huge number of Republican crossover votes from the suburbs."

Vallas ran and lost narrowly in the Democratic primary shortly after leaving the helm of the Chicago schools.
