Source: Aaron Shock will not run for governor

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Sources tell Fox 32 News that Peoria Congressman Aaron Schock will announce Friday that he will not run for governor. He has been considered a rising star of the Illinois GOP.

But sources say the 31-year-old representative has told friends he would prefer to remain in Congress, where he holds a seat on the influential Ways and Means Committee.

The House Ethics Committee is currently reviewing a complaint about Schock's role in campaign fundraising for a colleague. Schock insisted he's done nothing wrong.
