URBANA -- Congressman Rodney Davis (R) will run for re-election for the 13th District. He announced his re-election campaign Monday on the UI campus.

The republican from Taylorville says the budget and government spending are two big issues for him. He also thinks lawmakers will be able to pass a bill to keep the federal government from shutting down October 1.

Davis will run against former Miss America Erika Harold in the republican primary.
