Brady wins Republican governor nomination

Bloomington Sen. Bill Brady beat out his opponent Sen. Kirk Dillard from Hinsdale by 193 votes for the Republican nomination for governor.

The State Board of Elections certified the votes this morning.

Dillard previously said he would not seek a recount unless the margin was less than 100 votes. He would have to pay for the preliminary recount. If those results indicated problems with the votes, then a statewide recount would be conducted with public funds.

Both candidates are holding news conferences later today. Check back for more details.
