The names of four former federal prosecutors will be sent to President Barack Obama for consideration as the nominee for the highly coveted Chicago U.S. Attorney post, according to a report by the Chicago Tribune.

Illinois Sens. Dick Durbin (D) and Mark Kirk (R) sent the letter to the White House for the Obama administration to choose who will succeed former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who left the post in June.

The four finalists are reportedly Jonathan Bunge, Zach Fardon, Lori Lightfoot and Gil Soffer. All four are former Chicago federal prosecutors and now work as partners in large Chicago law firms.
