Kirk Dillard plans Tuesday stop at Trademark Tavern & Tap in Lombard after entering race for Illinois governor

HINSDALE – State Sen. Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale) is officially announcing Monday his gubernatorial bid for the 2014 election, joining a crowded field but contending he is the one Republican who can win the general election.

Dillard is the fourth GOP member to announce a challenge to Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn since June, joining state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, state Sen. Bill Brady and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner.

It's the second bid for the post for Dillard, of DuPage County, who lost to Brady in the 2010 Republican primary by 193 votes.

Dillard plans a two-day statewide fly-around. On Monday, he planned to kick off his day at his boyhood home in Chicago, followed by stops in Moline and Decatur. On Tuesday, he plans to stop in Peoria, Murphysboro, Rockford and Lombard.

His stop in Lombard is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Trademark Tavern & Tap, 777 E. Butterfield Road.
