GOP's Dillard Officially Enters Governor's Race

CHICAGO (AP) - Republican state Sen. Kirk Dillard has launched his 2014 campaign for governor outside his childhood home in Chicago.      

Dillard lost the 2010 GOP primary to state Sen. Bill Brady. Dillard says he's learned lessons since then.  He's billing himself as a good candidate because he's a suburban Chicago politician with downstate votes.      

Dillard trails other Republican candidates in fundraising, including venture capitalist Bruce Rauner.  But Dillard says he'll be able to raise what he needs and is announcing his bid this time with more money than 2010.      

Dillard addressed a handful of supporters Monday to mark the start of a two-day statewide tour.
