Who's backing whom?

Who's backing whom?

Now that primary season has picked up, I'll do this occasionally because it's the time of year when party leaders will back one candidate or another.

Today, we got notice that state Rep. JoAnn Osmond, an Antioch Republican who isn't running for re-election in 2014, said she's backing state Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale for governor. Dillard is running against state Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington, businessman Bruce Rauner of Chicago and Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa.

And U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, a Winfield Republican, will support state Rep. Darlene Senger for Congress in the 11th District over Chris Balkema of Channahon and Ian Bayne of Aurora.

The primary is set for March 18.
