Speaking on WGN-AM's "Greg Jarrett Show" this morning, GOP governor nominee Bill Brady negged Sheila Simon for her lack of business experience while promoting the business bona fides of his own baby-faced running mate, Jason Plummer.

“I think it’s more the academician against a person who runs a family business—someone who’s involved in that,” Brady said.

Brady's criticism of Simon is consistent with what state GOP leaders have previously told Ward Room.

But as HuffPo points out, Plummer's resume isn't exactly an all-star example of business acumen.
