Endorsements are starting to pile up ahead of the coming Democratic primary.

Here are the Oak Park ties: Fritz Kaegi is the Oak Parker running for Cook County assessor against incumbent Joseph Berrios. Kaegi's purpose, as the Journal reported in September, is to overhaul a property tax assessment system in Cook County that he sees as rigged for commercial property owners and the politically astute.

Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia was expected Monday to add his endorsement of Kaegi. Already on board are State Sen. Heather Steans and retiring County Clerk David Orr.

Meanwhile, Chris Kennedy is picking up local endorsements in his race for the Democratic nod for governor. Cong. Danny Davis and Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin came out for Kennedy Sunday in an announcement at Greater St. John Bible Church in Austin.
