A day after venture capitalist Bruce Rauner announced his bid for governor, state Sen. Kirk Dillard said he's expecting to announce his own intentions in a few weeks.

As Dillard moves forward, he does so with a boost from former Gov. Jim Edgar, a Republican darling who just gave Dillard a $20,000 infusion to his campaign fund.

Dillard, 57, of Hinsdale said he and his wife are poring over their kids' summer schedules (a 10-and-12-year-old) to find a good time to announce.

Dillard said Edgar may also attend the announcement.
"Most importantly I need Gov. Edgar's support and counsel," during the campaign, Dillard said.
