New Name In Illinois Governor’s Race

Posted by wlpo on June 5, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) – Republican venture capitalist Bruce Rauner says he’s running for Illinois governor in 2014.

In a video posted on his website, Rauner says Illinois is in a financial mess. He says the state needs a political outsider to fix things.

Rauner will face state Treasurer Dan Rutherford in the GOP primary. Republican Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady also have expressed interest.

Gov. Pat Quinn has said he’ll run for re-election. Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley and Attorney General Lisa Madigan are considering a Democratic primary challenge.
