Madison County Regional Schools Superintendent Bob Daiber has launched a bid for the Democrat party nomination for Illinois Governor in Edwardsville. In the event Monday afternoon, Daiber says jobs and education will be his campaigns key focus.
Daiber plans to remain on the job as regional schools chief for the time being. He says that could change sometime down the road. Primary balloting for the Governors race is more that a year away, March 20th, 2018. So far Daiber and Chris Kennedy, son of the late Robert Kennedy, are the only announced Democratic candidates.
