A Chicago alderman says he is exploring a possible run for Congress.

Ald. Brendan Reilly, whose 42nd Ward covers much of downtown Chicago, told ABC7 on Tuesday that he's been "encouraged by a number of folks to look at it, so I am."

However, the alderman and vice mayor says there's still plenty of work to do at the city level.
