Bruce Rauner has won the Republican nomination for Illinois governor over Kirk Dillard. The Chicago Sun-Times reports:

“For months, Bruce Rauner treated his winning the Republican nomination for governor like a foregone conclusion, declaring he was the only Republican who could  “shake up Springfield.”
