(CHICAGO) State Representative Scott Drury, a Democrat from North Suburban Highwood is thinking about running for Governor.
Drury is outspoken. He refused to support Mike Madigan for speaker and in 2015 scolded his colleagues for approving a stopgap budget. “It’s like we’re a bunch of heroin addicts because what happens is when it gets too painful and we can’t deal with reality, we give ourselves some legislation like this and it numbs us to the pain.  It makes us feel good.  It makes us feel good about ourselves and when the pain wears off in 60 days we give ourselves another shot and we feel good again.”
Democrats who’ve already announced their run for Governor are billionaire entrepreneur and investor J.B. Pritzker, businessman Chris Kennedy, Chicago Alderman Ameya Pewar (47th) and state Senator Daniel Biss of Evanston.
