Sen. Bill Brady announces 3rd bid for governor

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (Associated Press) -

State Sen. Bill Brady is making a third bid to be Illinois governor.

The Bloomington Republican writes on his campaign website Tuesday that he isn't giving up on Illinois despite the state's serious fiscal challenges. He plans to formally announce the move Wednesday at appearances across the state. He'll start in Chicago and end the day at a Bloomington restaurant.

Brady joins an already crowded 2014 Republican field. Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa, Chicago businessman Bruce Rauner and state Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale already announced bids in the March 8 primary.

Brady narrowly emerged as the Republican primary victor in 2010. Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn defeated him by less than one percent of 3.6 million votes.
