  • State Sen. Bill Brady, the Republican candidate for governor, says he’s found a role model in former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
  • The brother of former President George Bush appeared with Brady in Chicago on Thursday.
  • Jeb Bush said he likes Brady’s commitment to limited government and enthusiasm for free markets. He said he’s advised Brady to fully fund Illinois’ troubled public-pension system.
  • Bush also took a few jabs at Illinois politics. He said it’s hard not to keep up on what’s happening in the state because of national attention he figures is humiliating to “normal, everyday people.”
  • Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn had said Wednesday it was “insulting” to the people of Illinois for Brady to bring in a member of the Bush family to cheerlead for him and thati former President Bush ran the nation’s economy “into the ground."
This is great news if it holds up. It's the first time I've heard any politician in this country support the pensions. Since Brady is well ahead in the polls and the electorate is tired of the democrats, there's a good chance Brady will be governor. I just hope this is more than an empty campaign promise.
