Draft Oberweis for governor?
A website has emerged called DraftOberweis.com to apparently try to draft state Sen. Jim Oberweis, a Sugar Grove Republican, for a bid for governor.
Who is behind it?
"It is not I," Oberweis said.
Oberweis lost a primary bid for governor in 2006. He said the party already has some good candidates this time but isn't backing one in particular yet.
Would the dairy magnate be interested?
Oberweis said he'd think about it if there was a "really, really, really" big groundswell of support.
"But I don't see that at this time," he said.
