I didn't take seriously the various stories that State Sen. Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale) would run for governor of Illinois.
But two days ago I received a robocall--my first ever, by the way--announcing Dillard is in the race.
I haven't decided which Republican I support, but I can assure you I won't be backing Dillard's gubernatorial bid. Dillard appeared in a Barack Obama campaign ad last spring, touting the man who has turned into the biggest tax-and-spender in American history. In a small way, Dillard is responsible for the massive deficits and the ongoing attempt to permanently expand government.
Despite his appearance in that ad, Dillard was a John McCain delegate at the Republican National Convention.
We need a leader to run Illinois, not a duplicitous hack.
