DescriptionURBANA — Jerry Clarke, the former chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Tim Johnson, formally announced this morning that he hopes to succeed Johnson in Congress.

Johnson announced last week that he is retiring from Congress at the end of his current term. The 14 Republican county chairmen in the new 13th Congressional District will meet to name a replacement candidate sometime in the next month.

Clarke is the only candidate to make a formal announcement but he is not the only candidate. Others who have said they are interested include state Reps. Adam Brown of Decatur and Dan Brady of Bloomington, former state Rep. Mike Tate of Springfield and Rodney Davis, an aide to U.S. Rep. John Shimkus, R-Collinsville.
