Freshman Congressman Bill Enyart will seek a second term representing the 12th Congressional District in Washington.  The Belleville Democrat is a former two-star general who also served as the commander of the Illinois National Guard.  The 64-year-old announced his plans this week, a day after candidates began filing election applications in Illinois.  

So far, two Republican candidates will face off in a primary to face off against Enyart next year.
