Blagojevich Camp Swarmed With Resumes

By AP/KWMU

Chicago, IL – Illinois' Governor-elect Rod Blagojevich and his transition team are being swarmed with resumes from people looking for jobs in the new administration.

Blagojevich says people even ask him as he walks down the street.

He's the first Democratic governor in 26 years, meaning a lot of jobs will be up for grabs but maybe not as many as people think. Blagojevich promises he'll balance the budget without raising taxes, which means more jobs cuts are likely.
