Rutherford To Seek Governor’s Office

RutherfordState Treasurer Dan Rutherford says he’ll announce this weekend that he’s seeking the Republican nomination for Illinois governor.
He told The Associated Press on Thursday that he’ll make it official Sunday. That’s when he launches a three-day tour with stops including Chicago, Pontiac, Springfield and Rockford.
Rutherford has been saying for months that he’s interested in the job and waiting for the right time to announce.
The former state representative is likely to face a number of GOP contenders. Those who’ve expressed interest are state Sens. Bill Brady, Kirk Dillard and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner.  Gov. Pat Quinn has said he’ll seek re-election in 2014 and could face challenges from within his own party. Former White House chief of staff and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan also are considering runs. (AP)
