Watch Berkowitz and others question former State Sen. Dillard (R-Hinsdale) and Gov. Edgar re Sen. Dillard’s views on pension reform, ethics, Gov. Rauner and other matters and also a blast from the past: gone but not forgotten- then GOP GOV primary candidate Rauner during the run-up to the 2014 GOP Primary election.
Senator Dillard, now viewed as a moderate, is weighing joining the current field of four candidates in the GOP GOV primary- a crop of four that skews conservative. Dillard said recently some businessmen and politicians want him to consider a run. Dillard, now 66, in that Mike Flannery local Fox interview touted what he did in his more youthful days- toiling for “moderate” Governors Thompson and Edgar, who Dillard said modern day Republicans would do well to learn from.
Also, Jesse Sullivan, a 37 year old venture capitalist (CEO and Founder, Alter Global) from downstate IL confirmed publicly in the last few weeks what has been rumored for two months- that he is also weighing joining the GOP GOV primary field, and seems likely to decide a course of action soon. Further, there are now rumors floating around that if Sullivan enters the GOP GOV race, he can and will contribute significantly to his own campaign during the Primary.
Sullivan has a Stanford MBA and a Master’s from Oxford in Global Governance and Diplomacy and is twice a valedictorian, with some Jesuit undergraduate training.
Sullivan, in contrast to Dillard’s look back, may look more like a “Modern day, New Frontier JFK.” Could he do that by asking: Is Illinois ready to turn the corner on the tired politics and failed policies of the past two decades. Could Jesse Sullivan bring some dynamic, intellectual dexterity to the GOV race? Could that be a novel and game changing trait in both the primary and general election?
Jesse Sullivan resides with his bride and four young kids in Petersburg, IL, which is about a half hour out of Springfield, IL.
