With a primary election coming up on Feb. 2, there are seven Republicans, two Democrats and one Green Party candidate running for the office.
Among the Democrats are incumbent Pat Quinn and challenger Dan Hynes, the comptroller.
The Green Party candidate is Rich Whitney, a lawyer from Carbondale.
The Republicans in the race are Adam Andrzejewski of Hinsdale, Bill Brady, a state Senator from Bloomington, Kirk Dillard, a state Senator from Hinsdale, Andy McKenna, the former chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, Dan Proft, a Chicago businessman, Jim Ryan, a former DuPage County state's attorney from Elmhurst, and Bob Schillerstrom of Naperville, the DuPage County Board chairman.
There's no specific question on this thread, but feel free to discuss the gubernatorial campaign here.
Edit: Bob Schillerstrom dropped out of the race on Friday, saying he would support Jim Ryan.
