Yet another candidate formally jumps into the Republican race for governor Wednesday… and this one has been there before.
State Senator Bill Brady will kick off his 3rd try for the Executive Mansion during a statewide fly-around that will include a stop in Springfield. Brady finished third in the 2006 GOP primary, and then narrowly defeated Kirk Dillard in 2010… only to lose the general election to Governor Pat Quinn by less than one-percent.
Brady says in a statement that he’s not giving up on Illinois… and with the right leadership the state can prosper again.
He will make a noon hour stop at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport on Wednesday… Brady will also be a guest Wednesday morning at 8:10 on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show.”
