The last republican to serve in the governor's office picks which current gubernatorial candidate selected the best running mate.
Former Governor Jim Edgar says Sen. Kirk Dillard's choice of Jil Tracy is an obvious "home run". He says Tracy's experience as a State Representative, as well as her family's business, makes her the most qualified to replace Dillard should something happen to him while in office.
Edgar's endorsement comes on the heels of candidate Bruce Rauner's choice Tuesday. He picked Evelyn Sanguinetti.
