Kirk Dillard in the 2014 gubernatorial primary, saying he's the only Republican who can win the general election.<br>&nbsp;<br>Former Govs. Jim Edgar and Jim Thompson have endorsed Dillard. They sent a letter earlier this week to all GOP county and township chairmen and ward<br>committeemen. They say the Hinsdale legislator is a seasoned campaigner and the only candidate who ``can take the fight to the entrenched Democrats that<br>dominate the state capitol.''<br>&nbsp; Fri, 06 Sep 2013 21:29:29 +0000 Sean Crawford 8487 at http://wuis.org Two Former Governors Backing Dillard
