Dillard Picks Rep. Tracy For IL Lt. Governor

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard has chosen state Representative Jil Tracy as his running mate. Dillard announced his lieutenant governor pick late yesterday (Monday) on Instagram with a video message. Tracy is a Quincy Republican who first took office in 2006. She is part of the bipartisan panel trying to find a solution to Illinois' pension problem.

Dillard is set to make the announcement official today (Tuesday) with a statewide tour, including stops in Quincy, Springfield and Rockford.  It's the first year lieutenant governor candidates will run with governor candidates on the same ticket in Illinois.
