Schock wants to run for governor


The Associated Press




CHICAGO (AP) — Republican Congressman Aaron Schock of Peoria says he's considering a run for Illinois governor.

Schock tells WMAQ-TV in Chicago ( http://bit.ly/11UjNmZ ) that he hopes other GOP hopefuls will step aside. Schock says “the less bloodletting, the better.”

The 31-year-old Peoria congressman and former state representative says he knows he can't “tell them not to run.” But Schock says other candidates from his party who have run before are wasting their time.

He says his age won't be a factor in whether he runs for governor.

Schock was first elected to Congress in 2009.

Other Republican candidates who have shown interest in the Illinois governor's race include state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, and state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard.

The next general election for Illinois governor is in November 2014.
