Illinois businessman Scott Harper is waging a rematch campaign in 2010 against Republican Rep. Judy Biggert .

Harper, a Democrat, said Friday that he would again run in Illinois’ 13th District, a collection of suburbs southwest of Chicago that Biggert has represented since 1999. Biggert won their 2008 contest by a margin of 54 percent to 44 percent.  

“I am looking forward to traveling around the district to build on the grassroots support I received last year by showing voters I am this person and discussing my ideas for getting our economy back on track, and building a better future for our families, children, and communities in the 13th District,” Harper said.
