Alan Keyes, the new Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Illinois, says he chose to run because of Democrat Barack Obama's record on social issues. Keyes, a Maryland resident, political commentator and two-time presidential candidate, was tapped to run after a scandal ended the campaign of the previous GOP candidate.
