Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford announced he's running for the GOP nomination in the 2014 governor's race.
The republican said, he is not happy about the way his state is being viewed by Illinois residents and people in different parts of the country. He also wants to lower the unemployment rate.
Rutherford stopped in Springfield on Sunday. He is on a three-day statewide tour to spread his message.
Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn has said he'll seek re-election.
