CHICAGO, Ill. -- Republican businessman Bruce Rauner says he will run for Governor in 2014.
Rauner made the official announcement in a video released on his website Wednesday morning.
In the video Rauner says the state needs a 'political outsider' to fix things.
Rauner will face Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford in the GOP primary. Rutherford announced his run for Governor during a multi-stop tour of Illinois on Sunday.
Republican Senator Bill Brady (44th District) and Kirk Dillard (24th District) have also expressed interest in a run for Governor.
