Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock Visits Quincy


Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock says he's strongly considering a run for governor in 2014.

Schock was in Quincy Wednesday to show support for alderman Kyle Moore, who is running for mayor of Quincy.

He says he travels back to Illinois every weekend, and says there is not good enough leadership in Springfield. He says he thinks it's time for some fresh faces. 

"We continue to go down the road of not dealing with pension reform, not dealing with a lot of the cuts that need to happen here in state government, and it's the same people that keep getting elected. And I'm a firm believer that you have to change some of the people in Springfield if you want different results - and that starts at the top," says Schock.

Schock says he does not feel his age would affect a run for governor. He says he's been the youngest congressman for years now, and that his record speaks for itself.
