Jackson May Not Return by Election Day

Looks like Jesse Jackson Jr. won’t be hitting the campaign trail this year. The Illinois congressman’s wife said on Wednesday that her husband is seeing a doctor two or three times a week, and the doctor will decide when Jackson can return to work—which might not be until after Election Day. Jackson took a leave of absence about three months ago and was being treated at the Mayo Clinic  for depression until the beginning of September, when he was released. Jackson’s wife, Sandi, confirmed on Tuesday that while the family’s Washington-area home is no longer on the market, they are trying to sell it privately.
