Cadigan last week filed a statement of candidacy and a statement of organization with the Federal Election Commission to initiate a campaign in the 10th, which takes in suburbs north of Chicago.

Speaking with CQ Politics on Monday, Cadigan identified “the economy and reform” as the two major reasons he’s running for the House.
