4 GOP Governor Candidates to Square Off

voteCHICAGO (AP) — Illinois voters will get another chance to hear from one stage the views of the four Republicans running for governor.

WMAQ-TV in Chicago will host a candidate forum Tuesday evening at a University of Chicago hall.

Those expected to participate are state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady, businessman Bruce Rauner and Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford.

The debate is among several in the days ahead of the March 18 primary. Early voting has already started.

Organizers say the moderated event will take place in a round-table format. It’ll last an hour and then audience members will be allowed to ask questions.

Gov. Pat Quinn is seeking re-election. He faces one Democratic challenger, activist Tio Hardiman. Campaign officials say Quinn won’t participate in any debates ahead of March 18.
