Former Governor Jim Edgar is jumping into the governor's race with full support for Bruce Rauner. Edgar says it's time to mix things up in Springfield because the state hasn't fared so well under Democratic leadership. In fact, he says things have been in a state of disaster under Governor Quinn and former Governor Rod Blagojevich's watch. Edgar supported Kirk Dillard in the GOP primary back in March but he says that's all behind him now and party unity is what's important.
