Manar Dismisses Run for Governor in 2018

State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) had publicly explored the idea of running for Governor, but announced on Friday that he will not be making a run in 2018, and will instead continue to serve as State Senator from the 48th Illinois District.


Manar said in a statement released Friday that he had concerns about his family, and what a campaign for the top position in the state would do. Manar also stated that he intends to continue working on the problems those in his district, and in Illinois face.


Manar was also critical of Governor Bruce Rauner in his statement, stating that Rauner “has failed to grow into the leadership role the state desperately needs”.
