PEORIA, Ill. -- With just a week to go before the Primary election, Republican Gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady is expressing confidence.

Brady was in Peoria Tuesday morning talking with the party faithful about his economic agenda.

The Bloomington State Senator says if he is elected, he would make sure community colleges are equipped to provide training for today's workforce.

Bill Brady won 98 of Illinois' 102 counties in the 2010 election, but lost to Democrat Pat Quinn, who took the heavily populated northern counties.

This time around, Brady says his campaign is stronger, even though he has been outspent by GOP front runner Bruce Rauner.
