State Sen. Kirk Dillard will officially announce Monday that he is making another run for Illinois Governor.

The Republican from Hinsdale ran in 2010, but narrowly lost the primary to state Sen. Bill Brady.

Dillard plans to fly-around Illinois Monday and Tuesday, to re-introduce himself to voters.

He’ll start at his childhood home in Chicago Monday morning, then visit the Quad Cities and Decatur.

On Tuesday, the tour continues with stops in Peoria, Murphysboro and Rockford.

Former Governor Jim Edgar is joining him for part of the tour.

Dillard is the fourth GOP member to announce a challenge to Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn since June, joining state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, state Sen. Bill Brady and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner.
