Ilya Sheyman is the first of the Democrats running for Congress in the 10th District to take his message to TV.

Sheyman, 25, of Waukegan, narrates the 30-second ad, which begins airing this week on cable networks, his campaign announced Monday. It will run through the March 20 primary election.

The spot, called "American Dream," focuses on Sheyman's past as a Jewish refugee from the former Soviet Union and his community activism with MoveOn.org.

No mention is made of the incumbent 10th District congressman, Republican Bob Dold, or the other Democrats in the primary race.

Sheyman is one of four Democrats who will appear on the ballot in the 10th District contest. The others are: Brad Schneider of Deerfield; John Tree of Long Grove; and Vivek Bavda of Mundelein.

A fifth Democrat, Aloys Rutagwibira of Hainesville, is running a write-in campaign.

The winner will face Dold in November's general election.

Sheyman's ad also is viewable on his campaign website and on YouTube.
