An O'Fallon man is throwing his hat in the ring for Congress in the 12th District.  Doug Bucshon (pictured) is a 20-year veteran of the Illinois Army National Guard and a sports journalist covering the U of I.    Bucshon says he decided to jump in the race to bring change to the future.  

He says he'll focus on supporting veteran services, protecting Scott Air Force Base from closure in 2015, and putting people in high paying jobs in the Metro-East and southern Illinois.  William Enyart currently holds the seat.
