A local congressman says he's considering a run for Illinois' top job.
Republican Aaron Schock of Peoria says he hopes other GOP hopefuls will step aside for his campaign.
The 31-year-old congressman 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 two state Senators.
The next general election for Illinois governor is in November 2014.
