    who is left to run there?

      The 18th is a heavily Republican district, but it's not home base to any sitting member of Congress. There are plenty of GOP state reps and senators who could take it.

      On the Dem side, the most obvious candidate would be State Senator John Sullivan. He has a reputation as a moderate and already represents a large portion of the district. He might even have a fighting chance against Schock in 2012 with Obama at the top of the ticket.
