A new name in the running for the Democratic nomination in the state’s 13th Congressional District. A third democrat, Erik Jones announced on Monday that he wants the seat. Jones is an Edwardsville lawyer who has a background in government. Jones previously was an investigative counsel for the US House Committee on Oversight and the US Senate’s Commerce Committee. Jones is now in an increasingly crowded field of Democrats in the primary. He joins perpetual candidate Dr. David Gill and Betsy Dirksen Londrigan. The 13th is currently represented by Republican Rodney Davis of Taylorville.
