Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Matteson/Chicago) yesterday ended speculation that she will run for Governor next year. Ms. Kelly made public her endorsement of state Sen. Daniel Biss (D) for Governor, thus clearly taking herself out of consideration for the statewide campaign. In addition to Sen. Biss, investment businessmen Chris Kennedy and J.B. Pritzker are the most prominent announced candidates. Gov. Bruce Rauner (R), viewed as vulnerable even though he will spend upwards of $100 million on his campaign, is seeking re-election.
