Kirk Dillard to `campaign like crazy` for Ill. governor

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Republican candidate for Illinois governor Kirk Dillard says he plans to "campaign like crazy" in the final weeks before the March 18 primary.

The state senator from Hinsdale spoke during a news conference Tuesday where he also discussed his plan to improve Illinois' economy.

The proposal includes capping state spending at this year's levels "for the foreseeable future," reducing the state's debt and repealing burdensome business regulations.

Dillard faces state Sen. Bill Brady, businessman Bruce Rauner and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford for the GOP nomination.

Dillard says he plans to focus on his economic plan and improving Illinois schools during the campaign's final days. His campaign also launched statewide cable TV ads on Tuesday.

The candidates are scheduled to debate Tuesday and Wednesday in Chicago.
