Salvi is the wife of former state representative and attorney Al Salvi. He says his wife is "honored and flattered" by the Aurora businessman's invitation to run for lieutenant governor.
Al Salvi says his wife still plans to file election papers this week to run for the congressional seat held by U.S. Representative Melissa Bean.
But he says she's not discouraging Oberweis' efforts to include her as his partner. Al Salvi says his wife will have the week during the filing period to decide.
