The 2012 campaign is barely over, but for some, the 2014 race for governor has already started.
State Senator Kirk Dillard says he’s already making plans for another try at the Executive Mansion.
Dillard narrowly lost to Senator Bill Brady in the 2010 GOP primary.
Several other Republicans are also considering a run, including Congressman Aaron Schock of Peoria, and Joe Walsh, the Chicago area congressman who lost his re-election bid Tuesday night.
Governor Pat Quinn hasn’t made any formal announcement, but it’s widely believed he will seek re-election in two years.
