Three of the four Republican candidates for governor will square off in a live T-V debate next month in Peoria.  State Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard are confirming that they’ll participate in the debate hosted by area public broadcast stations.  Businessman Bruce Rauner hasn’t said whether he would take place in the January 23rd match-up.  The Peoria debate is the only scheduled T-V face off for the candidates scheduled before the March primary to determine who takes on Governor Quinn next fall.
