The race for governor has forced the issue of term limits into the spotlight… and forced the GOP hopefuls to take a stand on it.
Bruce Rauner has linked his campaign for the Executive Mansion to a push for a constitutional amendment that would impose eight-year limits on lawmakers and change the structure of the General Assembly.
Bill Brady supports term limits for lawmakers, even though he has served 12 years in the Senate, and eight in the House before that.
Brady also wants term limits for the governor.
The other GOP candidates, Kirk Dillard and Dan Rutherford, only want limits on legislative leadership terms.
