Coming off his second tough loss in four years in a campaign for governor, Kirk Dillard says his career in politics isn’t necessarily over yet.
Dillard closed the gap but came up just short against Bruce Rauner in Tuesday’s GOP primary, just as he did against Bill Brady in the primary in 2010. Dillard says he won’t run for governor again… but when asked if he might seek another office, he replied “Never say never.”
State Senator Bill Brady says he will focus on the remaining two years of his current term. He hasn't ruled out yet another run for higher office. And state Treasurer Dan Rutherford has kept a low profile since his gubernatorial campaign flamed out following allegations from a male employee that Rutherford sexually harassed him. Rutherford says he will work to vindicate himself, and also vows to make a political comeback in the future.
