Republican Hopefuls Submit Petitions For Governor; Democrat Files To Run Against Quinn

No big surprises in the early hours of candidate filing. 


All four of the announced Republican candidates for governor submitted their nominating petitions first thing when the State Board of Elections office opened at 8am.  Dan Rutherford, Bruce Rauner, Kirk Dillard, Bill Brady and their running mates all submitted petitions and will all be in the running for top position on the GOP primary ballot after a lottery is conducted next month. 


Governor Pat Quinn has also submitted his petitions… but not before a Democratic challenger got in ahead of him.  Tio Hardiman is an anti-violence activist who was himself charged with domestic battery… but his wife later dropped the charges.  Hardiman will face Quinn in the Democratic primary… barring any petition challenge that could knock Hardiman off the ballot.
