One Democratic candidate for governor has no chance of winning. That’s according to UIC Political Science Chair Dick Simpson who tells “The Grio” that Tio Hardeman simply isn’t a credible candidate. Hardiman is a community activist who once led the CeaseFire Illinois program in an effort to curb violence, but he was recently accused of hitting his wife. He denied those charges but political experts say it’ll still cast a negative shadow over his campaign. Still, Hardiman says he’s serious about his bid for governor and is preparing for a primary battle with Governor Quinn, Bill Daley, and maybe even state Senator Kwame Raoul, who hasn’t announced an official bid yet.
