The Quad Cities' congresswoman is considering a run for governor in 2018. An assistant to Cheri Bustos released a statement yesterday saying the Democratic congresswoman is giving a run "serious consideration." Bustos easily won her heavily Democratic district last month. She's on the short list of possible Democratic challengers to Governor Bruce Rauner. But she'll have to find help to compete with the millions of dollars Rauner is expected to spend on the race.
