way to go QPD. You caught a 73,75, and 76 year old band of non-seat belt wearing criminals. Maybe they should be investigated for gang activity or conspiracy. The STEP program is a shameless waste of taxpayer money. We have more than enough police patrols now, as evidenced by all the petty crap they are arresting people for. It is little wonder that respect for police is so low. Solve some real crimes…

Says he thinks he can build on the support he had in 2010

Illinois State Senator and 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady says he might run again for the state’s top office.

Brady, who lost to current Governor Pat Quinn, says he’s waiting a few more months to jump into the race.

“I’m trying to avoid starting a campaign until June. I’d like through this legislative session because I do believe that some of the issues we’re facing will require bipartisan support and I’d like to keep the campaigning and the politics out of it until after this General Assembly,” said Brady.

Brady, who carried all but four counties in 2010 but still lost the election, said he thinks this election will be different.

“(There’s a) huge number of people in the general election who think we need to finish the job. We came 16,000 votes short and so I think we can build on that. I don’t think you can underestimate the political skills of Pat Quinn. This guy’s made a career and a living off of fooling voters and it won’t be an easy race, but I think this time we’ll get the job done.”

Brady said he thinks Quinn will have a tough primary if Attorney General Lisa Madigan decides to run. He also said he thinks Quinn deserves to lose to her if she does run.

Brady made his comments Thursday on The Morning Meeting on Talkradio 930 WTAD. You can listen to the full interview here.
