CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

An announcement is expected Thursday from a reverend who wants to fill Jesse Jackson Jr.'s congressional seat.

Rev. Anthony Williams will speak from what's known as "murder row."

He says whoever will represent the 2nd District needs to deal with the issue of violence.

Part of the 2nd District near 79th and Essex on Chicago's South Side is known as "murder row."

Williams will make a call for an end to violence Thursday.

Williams lost to Jackson Jr. in November. He is running again in the special election.
