Schock Not Running For Governor

Posted by wlpo on April 26, 2013

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) – The campaign manager for Republican Aaron Schock says the three-term congressman will seek re-election and forgo a run for Illinois governor.

Steve Shearer says Schock has concluded he can do more on Capitol Hill as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee than as governor. He said Schock could work on comprehensive tax reform and long-term repairs to entitlement programs.

Talk of the Peoria Republican’s possible run for governor began in earnest last summer. However, Schock said at the time he didn’t want to consider anything until after the November election.
