McCann Closes Door on Possible Independent Gubernatorial Candidacy


After staying silent while speculation swirled around him, state Senator Sam McCann is now closing the book on a very brief flirtation with a campaign for governor.

 

Supporters had begun circulating petitions touting the Macoupin County Republican as a potential independent challenger to both Democrat Pat Quinn and Republican Bruce Rauner.

 

McCann declined for several days to comment on the idea, but Tuesday night, he issued a statement saying he is not a candidate for governor.

 

McCann’s name had been floated by social conservatives who dislike Quinn but are also uneasy about Rauner.
