Congressman Aaron Schock has been joined on the stump by a U.S. president, a first lady and a string of other high-profile political types. But he'll have a different kind of big name by his side as he launches his campaign for a fourth term. Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher will be the guest at a Schock fundraising event next month.   Schock says there's been ``an oversaturation of politics'' in the past six weeks. He thinks Urlacher will be a welcome change. The Peoria Republican who also represents a part of McLean County says it will help him reach an audience that doesn't typically follow politics. He says it's similar to a cover shoot he did for Men's Health magazine or his appearance on the reality TV show ``Top Chef.''
