How is the lonely Republican supposed to determine a preference in the upcoming governors primary election. It would appear there are four qualified candidates all clamoring for your vote. So let's take a brief look at those candidates and what they feature.

-- One candidate lost in the last gubernatorial election to a weak democratic candidate!

-- One candidate couldn't get past the primary within his own party.

-- One candidate wasn't even on the horizon (I'm not aware if his money was or not).

-- One candidate won the election and became treasurer of Illinois. In fact, he reduced HIS office's budget 10 percent. He also eliminated six satellite offices during his term of office. He proved through his business and political experience he could be fiscally responsible and keep his campaign pledges. His integrity was in evidence through his actions. In fact, he received more statewide votes than the successful democratic governor. That candidate is Dan Rutherford.

Now Rutherford is asking for our help as the gubernatorial candidate and pledging the same no nonsense, frugal, spending practices he showed us as Treasurer. Help save Illinois -- support DAN!
