Schock Trial To Stay In Peoria

 Former Congressman Aaron Schock won't be tried in his hometown.  A federal judge yesterday turned down Schock's request to move his corruption trial to Peoria.  Schock is facing a laundry list of charges in connection to what prosecutors say was years worth of illegal government and campaign spending.  The judge says keeping the trial in Springfield won't hurt Schock's ability to defend himself.
