Brady to announce choice for lieutenant governor

CHICAGO — Republican State Sen. Bill Brady says he's getting ready to announce his running mate.

The gubernatorial candidate is holding an event at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Chicago to announce his pick for lieutenant governor.

This year's campaign marks the first time candidates run with their choices for the second-in-command position. Things changed after the 2010 primary when it was revealed the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor had past troubles, including a domestic battery charge. That candidate, Scott Lee Cohen, later dropped out.

Brady also ran for governor in 2010.

GOP candidate Kirk Dillard announced his choice for lieutenant governor earlier this month, picking state Rep. Jil Tracy of Quincy. Meanwhile, Republican state treasurer Dan Rutherford picked Chicago attorney Steve Kim. Venture capitalist Bruce Rauner hasn't named his selection.
