Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) is clinging to his job despite calls from his own party to step down.
Even President-elect Barack Obama says it's time for him to go. In Washington, Senate Democrats are warning Blagojevich not to appoint anyone to fill Obama's vacant Senate seat.
But a spokeswoman for the governor says it's "business as usual," even after one of the governor's top aides resigned because of his suspected ties to the investigation into whether Blagojevich tried to sell or trade the open seat.
While state lawmakers rush to set up a special election for the vacant seat, the hope in Washington is Blagojevich will simply step aside and let Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn take over, so he can appoint someone instead. Quinn also says Blagojevich should resign.
Lawmakers are preparing to discuss the possibility of impeachment on Monday.
