Dillard/Tracy ticket taking nothing for granted

Dillard/Tracy ticket taking nothing for granted

GOP candidates back in Quincy after an appearance last week

Just a week after a visit to Quincy, gubernatorial candidate Sen. Kirk Dillard was back on Wednesday.

The Republican State Senator from Hinsdale spoke to a Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce group at lunchtime and attended a fundraiser at Quincy Country Club in the evening. 

Dillard said campaigning in the home area of his running mate, State Rep. Jil Tracy of Quincy, shows voters he's taking nothing for granted, as he lost the GOP nomination for governor four years ago to Bill Brady by 193 votes.

Dillard was the second of the four GOP candidates for governor to speak before the Chamber group. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford spoke to them last month at Spring Lake Country Club
