Watch Berkowitz and others question former State Sen. Dillard (R-Hinsdale) and Gov. Edgar re Sen. Dillard’s views on pension reform (18:00 into the show), ethics, Gov. Rauner and other matters and also a cameo by then GOP GOV primary candidate Rauner during the run-up to the 2014 GOP Primary election.
Senator Dillard, now viewed as a moderate, is reportedly weighing joining the current field of four candidates in the GOP GOV primary- a crop of four that skews conservative.
Also, Jesse Sullivan, a 37 year old venture capitalist from downstate IL confirmed publicly to Illinoize this weekend what has been rumored for two months- that he is also weighing joining the GOP GOV primary field.
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, who appears publicly committed to helping those less fortunate than he is, might bring some intellectual dexterity to the GOV race, which could be an important trait in both the primary and general election.
Jesse Sullivan lives with his wife and four young kids in Petersburg, IL, which is near Springfield.
