Bill Brady hoping for different results second time around

For the second time, State Senator  Bill Brady from Bloomington wants the state’s top job as governor.

And like four years ago, he’s the dark horse in this primary race.

In 2010, Bill Brady beat fellow State Senator Kirk Dillard and won the Republican nomination by less than 200 votes.

In November that year, he lost to Pat Quinn by less than one percent.

And while Kirk Dillard is again an opponent, it’s Bruce Rauner with a sizable lead this time – a candidate the conservative Senator Brady sees as a Republican in name only.

Brady is focused on finances and his background in business.  But it’s the social issues; abortion, gun rights, and marriage equality where Brady’s made his conservative pedigree.

He introduced a constitutional amendment in the state senate four years ago to ban any recognition of same-sex relationships.

WGN’s Sean Lewis spoke with Brady ahead of the March 18th election.
