BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- State Senator Bill Brady will formally launch a third run for Illinois Governor on Wednesday during a statewide candidacy tour.

In 2010, the republican fell about 16,000 votes short in beating Governor Pat Quinn for the state's top seat.

Brady will be the fourth candidate on the GOP ticket. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, Businessman Bruce Rauner and Senator Kirk Dillard have already entered the race.

Democrats include Bill Daley, and Incumbent Governor Quinn who says he will seek re-election in 2014.

Brady will conclude his candidacy tour in his hometown of Bloomington. We will have coverage of the official announcement tomorrow during News 25 at 6.
