Adel - A Cook County attorney announced Tuesday he will run for Judge Brooks Blitch's seat.  Blitch is the center of two corruption investigations.  One by the FBI, the other by the Judicial Qualifications Commission.

Howard McClain says he has 25 years experience as a lawyer that will serve him well on the bench.

McClain has served as a city attorney, county attorney and municipal court judge.

"I would just like the opportunity to use my experience in practicing law and the knowledge I learned to assure the courts are run in a fair and impartial manner and again, according to law," McClain says.

Judge Brooks Blitch hasn't said if he'll seek re-election.
