Anti-Madigan Democrat announces run for IL governor

Almost to a person every Illinois Democrat that I know says they hate state House speaker and state Democratic Party boss Mike Madigan, the destroyer of the Land of Lincoln.

Okay, Dems. It's time to put your vote where your mouth is.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Touting his independence from Democratic Illinois House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, Democratic north suburban state Rep. Scott Drury on Tuesday announced a bid for the party’s nomination for governor.

In a press release, Drury noted that several candidates have declared their candidacies but that Drury sees the contest as a two-way race: Those with "demonstrated loyalties to the Madigan machine" versus him.

"I like those odds," Drury is quoted as saying in the release.
