    Madigan did send him a clock, it was lost in shipping somewhere.


  7. - Ron Burgundy - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:41 pm:

    They misspelled exiting.


  8. - Grand Avenue - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:41 pm:

    He never even wanted Madigan’s stupid clock.


  9. - A Jack - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:42 pm:

  14. - JoeMaddon - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:46 pm:

    Scott Drury: “As a Former Federal Prosecutor (#FFP), I have decided that I can best use my talents at President of the United States. Therefore I am stepping out of the race for IL Governor, and starting to build my campaign operation to run for President. Because, Mike Madigan.”


  15. - Rich Miller - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:46 pm:

    He has single-handedly convinced Amazon to locate HQ2 in Chicago, but only if Speaker Madigan and Gov. Rauner both immediately resign.


  16. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:48 pm:

    That @Drury4IL has passed 1,000 Twitter followers.

  17. - SinkingShip - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:51 pm:

    ===-Rich Miller - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 12:46 pm:

    He has single-handedly convinced Amazon to locate HQ2 in Chicago, but only if Speaker Madigan and Gov. Rauner both immediately resign.===

    That’s pretty much the only thing he could announce that wouldn’t be depressing on an existential level.

  23. - VanillaMan - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 1:15 pm:

    Almost got Phil Hare’s endorsement.


  24. - twist - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 1:16 pm:

    The thought of Scott Drury as Governor or Attorney General is more terrifying than a second term for Bruce Rauner.

  44. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 3:03 pm:

    From his Twitter feed: “Running for Governor of Illinois to bring honest change to Springfield.”

  51. - West Side the Best Side - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 3:15 pm:
