    Illinois Races: Kirk Dillard for Governor
    Republican State Senator Kirk Dillard is running for governor. Generally considered a moderate, some conservatives might not like him appearing in an ad for Obama last year.

    Senator Kirk Dillard from Hinsdale has served in all three branches of state government.  He was a Claims Court judge, Chief of Staff for Governor Jim Edgar, Director of Legislative Affairs for Governor James Thompson and elected to the Senate in 1994.

    According to Dillard's campaign site, he is an advocate for reduced state spending, employer incentive programs, innovative teaching approaches and ethics reform.

    He was an honors graduate of Western Illinois University in Macomb and DePaul University College of Law.

    Dillard personally submitted 10,000 petition signatures --twice the number needed -- to the Illinois State Board of Elections in order to place his name of the February Primary ballot.
