Last debate for Republican governor candidates

The Republican candidates for Illinois governor have debated for the final time.  

  WTTW’s Phil Ponce asked venture capitalist Bruce Rauner why he’d be a good governor when he’s had no work experience in government.

  RAUNER: This is all about leadership.

  The other three talked about being in the minority party for the past 10 years.

  State Senator Kirk Dillard.

  DILLARD: I’m running for governor because I can’t effectuate the kinds of changes that I want in this state.

  State Senator Bill Brady.

  BRADY: I brought pension reform to the State of Illinois. 

  Treasurer Dan Rutherford.

  RUTHERFORD: I am proud of my career in the legislature, as a citizen legislator.

  The candidates won’t debate on tv any more...  But the ads will go on - at least until Tuesday.
