Rutherford Announces Kim Is His Running Mate



Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Rutherford has chosen a Chicago attorney as his running mate.
 
Steve Kim is a 42-year-old lawyer from Northbrook. He has a Chicago practice and served as a Northfield township trustee. 
 
Kim challenged Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan in 2010 but lost. Kim is a Korean-American and immigrated to the U.S. with his family at a young age.
 
Those are all factors that Rutherford says he considered when making his lieutenant governor pick. Rutherford announced the news Monday on Twitter. He says Kim has the experience and the ability to reach Illinois' diverse population.
