Incumbent Brad Schneider (D) is a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election. Former Rep. Robert J. Dold is being actively recruited by top Republican officials, including the National Republican Committee, to make a 2014 bid for Congress against Brad Schneider (D), who unseated him in 2012.
