CHICAGO — Former Rep. Bob Dold (R-Il), president of Rose Pest Solutions, announced plans to run for U.S. Congress in 2014, to represent the 10th District of Illinois.   

Dold served as U.S. Representative for Illinois's 10th congressional district from 2010 to 2012, before losing his re-election bid last November to Brad Schneider (D-Il.)

In a statement posted to his campaign website, www.doldforcongress.com, Dold wrote, “As someone who broke the mold and earned a reputation as one of the most independent-thinking, moderate members of Congress, and as someone who was never afraid to work with anybody who shared a desire to solve problems, I share your frustration with the current lack of compromise and the consistent stalemate in Washington.

“Over the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with many of you about the problems you are facing in your businesses, in your households, and in your communities. You have encouraged me to carry your voice forward in 2014.”
