    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:

  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.

    Alex Hirsch is now going to lead the ticket, and Drury will be his Lt. Gov.????


  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.


  25. - VanillaMan - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 1:16 pm:

  30. - VanillaMan - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 1:22 pm:

  36. - 47th Ward - Monday, Sep 18, 17 @ 1:42 pm:

  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.”

    As opposed to phony change, like current governor.

    Using a pair of BBQ tongs, actually caught the answer that was “blowin’ in the wind.”


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

    Won’t be running for public office because after getting rehired as an AUSA, when he retires after 25 years he’ll get a clock as a retirement gift.
