Demmer said, "I support Bill Brady for Governor because he'll turn Illinois around and get us back on the right track. His experience as a businessman and a Senator shows he isn't afraid to tackle big issues and stand by his convictions. Bill will be a Governor who will lead with courage and vision."
Luechtefeld, a former high school basketball coach, said “I’ve coached a lot of teams over the years. If one of my teams came in second in a championship game one year, they came back stronger and more determined the following year. Bill Brady earned the respect and trust of hundreds of thousands of Illinoisans in the last campaign, winning 98 of our 102 counties, and I want to help him finish the job this time.”
