Congresswoman Robin Kelly will have a challenger in next year's election.
Eric Wallace announced in Kankakee Thursday evening that he'll be a Republican candidate the 2nd District in 2014. The district is heavily-Democrat, so Wallace knows he has an uphill battle ahead. But he said he'll focus on the south suburbs to hopefully gain the majority of votes.
Wallace, who's from Flossmoor, said the same-sex marriage vote will be a major issue in the race.
Wallace made his announcement at the Kankakee County Republican headquarters.
