GOP Candidates For Illinois Governor To Debate

By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Republicans seeking their party's nomination for Illinois governor are set to meet for their second debate in as many days.

State Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, businessman Bruce Rauner and Treasurer Dan Rutherford are scheduled to debate Wednesday in Chicago.

The televised WGN/Chicago Tribune event comes as the candidates make a final push before the March 18 primary.

Polls show Rauner, who has never run for public office, with a big lead. He also is the candidate with the most money.

This week Rauner donated another $1 million to his campaign, bringing the total from his own pocket to more than $6 million.

During a debate Tuesday in Chicago, Dillard called that amount "obscene." Rauner says his money means he won't be swayed by special interests.

The debate will also be aired at 6 p.m. on Channel 23.2, Antenna TV.
