He rejected concerns that he is a political insider with the onetime Jim Edgar aide noting that he was a part of the most significant legislative ethics reform effort of the past quarter century.
He called Governor Quinn MIA in dealing with the state financial mess.

An official announcement should be coming from Dillard later this month or early next month.
