The chairman of the DuPage County Board plans to join the race for Illinois governor. A spokesperson says Bob Schillerstrom will announce his run Sunday at a rally in Naperville.

The Republican formed a committee to explore the option in May. Schillerstrom is 57 and has led the DuPage board since 1998.

He's the latest among several Republicans hoping to reclaim the governor's mansion.
