ILLINOIS (WIFR) -- Republican candidate for the 17th District congressional race Eric Reyes has withdrawn.

"As a party, we Republicans need to be united in our efforts and therefore, rather than continue to divide the party and waste precious time and resources of all involved, I have chosen to withdraw my candidacy and focus on advancing the principles of freedom, liberty, and limited Constitutional government by other means," Reyes said in a press release.

That leaves former district 17 representative Bobby Schilling running on the Republican ticket. Incumbent Democratic representative Cheri Bustos is running for re-election as well.
