Dillard says he’s running for governor in 2014

CHICAGO – Illinois state Sen. Kirk Dillard said he’s preparing to make another run for Illinois governor.

The Hinsdale Republican’s name has often been mentioned as a top candidate for the 2014 race. He narrowly lost the 2010 gubernatorial primary to Republican Sen. Bill Brady.

Dillard told WIND-AM in Chicago that he’s more committed to the race now and that he has a proven track record and statewide recognition from his work with previous Republican governors.

He worked as chief of staff to former Gov. Jim Edgar and as legislative director for former Gov. Jim Thompson.
