Sen. Dillard Announces Gubernatorial Bid
Illinois state Sen. Kirk Dillard says he is preparing to make another run for governor. He lost the primary back in 2010 against Republican Bill Brady. The Hinsdale Republican has often been mentioned as a top candidate for the 2014 race.
Dillard worked as chief of staff to former Gov. Jim Edgar and legislative director for former Gov. Jim Thompson.
Dillard won re-election in his suburban Chicago district Tuesday.
