State Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) says he can win his second consecutive surprise Republican primary for governor if the people who are already his supporters just get out and vote Tuesday.

Referring to the polling and fund-raising leader, Brady says, “Bruce Rauner is trying to buy this election. He claimed that he wasn’t part of the one percent, but part of the point-01 percent of the wealthiest individuals in the world. He’s trying to spend his millions of dollars buying the election without really defining what he stands for.”

Brady, speaking to reporters in Springfield, reiterated his theme of being the “reliable Republican” who can win both the primary and general elections.
