COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) – A former state legislator from the Metro-East is visiting parts of central Illinois today, as he considers a run for Congress.

Democrat Jay Hoffman says he’ll be talking jobs and the economy with labor union members in Decatur, Bloomington, and Urbana.

The attorney from Collinsville lost his seat in Springfield to Republican Dwight Kay.

Hoffman has filed an exploratory committee, and says he may run for the state’s new 13th District U.S. House seat in 2012.
