As reported by Baar, Dillard, who is running for the GOP nomination for Governor in 2014, told the audience he aligned perfectly with the conservative ICRC's agenda. He also stated that if Dan Proft opts to stay out of the primary there'd only be two such conservatives - himself and fellow State Sen. Bill Brady.
Dillard went on to say that between him and Brady, he is the only one electable in the general election. Dillard lost to Brady by less than 200 votes in the crowded 2010 GOP gubernatorial primary election. Brady went on to lose to Gov. Pat Quinn.
