Kirk Dillard's union endorsements seem to be paying off. He's received 450-grand from AFSCME and two major teachers unions in the past three weeks. On top of getting the extra cash, Dillard has seen a surge in voter support in his bid for governor.
The latest Chicago Tribune/WGN-Poll reveals 23-percent of likely GOP voters would back Dillard in the primary election, still behind Bruce Rauner though, who has 36-percent support. But, Dillard leads the pack among homes that have at least one union member.
