Springfield -- Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford is continuing his cross-state tour after kicking off his 2014 campaign for governor.
The Republican is scheduled to make a series of stops on Monday, visiting supporters in Springfield, Marion, Cahokia, Quincy and Milan.
Rutherford is a Pontiac native and former, longtime state lawmaker who will likely face a crowded GOP field. Meanwhile, Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn has said he's running for re-election, but could face challenges from within his own party.
Rutherford visited Chicago, Channahon, Pontiac and Springfield yesterday on the start of his three-day campaign tour.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
