Corruption case against Blagojevich goes to jury

Federal jurors at the retrial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will begin deliberations Friday in the corruption case against him.

Charges against Blagojevich include trying to peddle the U.S. Senate seat that belonged to Barack Obama before he resigned to become president.

Blagojevich has denied any intention of bribery.

The jury will weigh the ex-governor's guilt or innocence on 20 public-corruption-related counts.
