So we know who may run next year for Governor, state Sen. Bill Brady. Be sure to read the disclaimer at the top of this post over at CapFax. Things change in three years time and the comments are interesting as well.
Republicans seem to be very hapless in this state. For whatever reason conservatism doesn't win, just look at Brady and the many Republican candidates who lost last year seeking re-election to Congress for instance.
Now I'm not saying conservatism isn't worth running on in this state. It does seems as if conservatism turns off a lot of people and perhaps it's the social issues that do the trick. Beyond that, clueless here!
2010 was a good year for a Republican pickup of the IL governorship and it didn't happen. 2014 remains to be seen as who's year it is in this state, but it will prove interesting. If Brady isn't the Republican who can win the governorship next year, then what Republican can step forward to win?
