The Republican congressman from Illinois who dropped out of the GOP primary race to test the independent route says he is not irrevocably committed yet to the fall campaign, "but it would be fair to say every experience I've had . . . as an independent candidate has only served to increase my . . . belief that we will, and can, be ultimately successful."
