State Sen. Brady concedes Illinois governor's race

Posted:

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) -- State Sen. Bill Brady has conceded the four-way Republican primary for Illinois governor.

 

He told supporters Tuesday in Bloomington that the race didn't end up as he'd hoped.

 

Early returns showed Brady far behind businessman Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur) and state Sen. Kirk Dillard. The fourth candidate, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford (ROOTH'-ur-furd), delivered a statement shortly after polls closed saying he'd be back with a different role in Illinois politics.

 

Brady says he wasn't ready to call anyone to congratulate them because the numbers were still close.

 

Brady won the GOP nomination in 2010, but lost the general election to Gov. Pat Quinn. Brady had said he was ready for another try and had built on support from the 2010 race.

 

Brady has been a longtime state legislator.
