DescriptionRepublican candidate for governor Jim Oberweis said Sunday that he has asked Kathy Salvi, a conservative intending to run for Congress in the north suburbs, to be his running mate.

Salvi, the wife of former state representative and attorney Al Salvi, is "honored and flattered" by Oberweis' invitation to be his lieutenant governor candidate, her husband said. She still plans to file election papers this week to run for the congressional seat held by U.S. Rep. Melissa Bean (D-Ill.), Al Salvi said, but she is not discouraging Oberweis' efforts to include her as his partner.

"She plans to continue filing for congressman, but she'll have a week during this filing period to decide," he said. "She does not object to the effort to file petitions on her behalf for lieutenant governor."
