Sen. Bill Brady

The Republican field for governor is already filling up. The primary is nine months away, but there are already three official candidates vying for the GOP nomination, with one at least one more expected to announce. The most recent person to throw his hat into the ring is Illinois Sen. Bill Brady. Brady ran for governor in 2010, losing to Pat Quinn by less that 1 percent. Brady was a member of the Illinois House of Representatives from 1993 to 2001, and then joined the Illinois Senate and has served in that chamber until now. He joins us on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm to explain why he wants to give it another go in the race for Illinois governor. View a timeline of Brady's political career:
