Dillard sees himself as most electable GOP governor candidate

The newest candidate for Illinois governor said he's the most electable Republican in the race.

Senator Kirk Dillard officially announced his campaign for governor this week.  He lost the 2010 Republican primary  by 193 votes to Senator Bill Brady.  Dillard joins a very crowded Republican field with Brady, Treasurer Dan Rutherford and businessman Bruce Rauner.

Dillard said he's the best candidate, with a track record of working with Democrats to make sure the state wasn't over spending during former Governor Jim Edgar's tenure.

Dillard made the comments Wednesday on the WDWS Morning Show.
