Former state Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton, whose controversial campaign nearly upset incumbent Bruce Rauner in last year’s Republican primary for governor, filed papers Thursday setting up a primary battle for the right to challenge freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten of Downers Grove.

Ives’ candidacy for the 6th Congressional District pits her against Rauner’s former running mate, former Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti. It also creates the potential for a rematch of sorts featuring themes from the 2018 primary for governor, which Ives lost to Rauner by fewer than 22,100 votes.
