After Illinois GOP loss, Brady's next step unclear

BLOOMINGTON — Bill Brady doesn't say much yet about what he might do next after losing in the Republican primary for governor.

The state senator still has two years left on his term and will focus on that job first.

He is still involved in his family's real estate development business. And they are also are opening a Jimmy John's sandwich shop in Florida where they've long had a condominium.

But Brady can't yet say whether he might make a fourth bid for governor or a run at another higher office.

His wife, Nancy Brady, says that after he lost to Gov. Pat Quinn in 2010 she knew right away he would run again.

This time she says she has no idea.
