Conservative Brady wins Ill. GOP nod

The Illinois State Board of Elections Friday certified state Sen. Bill Brady the winner of the Feb. 2 GOP gubernatorial primary. The Bloomington conservative edged out his nearest competitor, state Sen. Kirk Dillard, by only 0.25 percent. Dillard is not expected to ask for a recount.

The Democratic Governors Association is already hitting Brady for undergoing a "moderate makeover."
