In this Oct. 24, 2012 photo, Unity Party candidate Lance Tyson, campaigns in Illinois' 10th legislative district against Derrick Smith in Chicago. Smith, a former state representative indicted on federal bribery charges - and on the ballot as a Democrat - is fighting to regain Illinois' 10th legislative district seat he was expelled from in August. A victory for Smith could be another embarrassment for a party and a state that already have a reputation for corruption, party leaders say, and they are going to great lengths to defeat Smith. The district’s Democratic party committeemen announced a new political party called the "10th District Unity Party" and selected Tyson to take on Smith. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)
