SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Sen. Bill Brady will be the first Republican listed on next spring's primary ballot for governor.

Brady won a four-way lottery yesterday to claim the coveted ballot position.

Democratic incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn will be listed second on the Democratic side behind Tio Hardiman.

Brady, of Bloomington, will be followed on the March 18 ballot by Treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa, Hinsdale Sen. Kirk Dillard and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner of Winnetka.

Republican Peter Edward Jones will be listed fifth by virtue of filing last. The Sun-Times reports his petitions are being challenged.

Quinn and Hardiman are challenging each other's petitions. Hardiman is the former head of the non-profit group CeaseFire.
