An Illinois business and civic leader may be throwing his hat in the ring for Illinois governor in 2014.

Bruce Rauner, a Republican, filed papers with the Illinois State Board of Elections, and for the next 60 days, he will significantly increase his events and meetings, while looking to make a final determination on a candidacy well in advance of the March, 2014 primary election, a press release said.

"I was born and raised in Illinois. I've raised my family and grown businesses here. And I love our state. That's why it's so heartbreaking to see the mess we're in," Rauner said in the release.

Rauner works at an investment company Golder, Thoma, Cressey, which later became GTCR Golder Rauner.
