Congressional candidate talks motivation to run

PEORIA, Ill - Betsy Dirksen Londrigan was motivated to run for Congress, in large part, by her son Jack.

He was read his last rites -- twice -- after contracting a rare illness that left him hospitalized for nearly a month.

While Londrigan says it's important to keep in place the protections provided by the Affordable Care Act, she supports a model closer to universal coverage.

During our wide-ranging interview, we also discussed the Iran nuclear deal, North Korea, immigration, the Farm Bill and gun violence
