The heat was still on in the second GOP candidate debate between state Sen. Bill Brady, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, state Sen. Kirk Dillard and businessman Bruce Rauner. According to the Chicago Sun-Times’ Politics Early & Often

“Four Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidates clashed in out-for-blood combat during a live televised debate Wednesday night, interrogating one another, hurling insults and even threatening legal action. 
 
With no format to abide by in the WGN-Channel 9/Tribune event, candidates — who are clearly getting under each other’s skin at this point in the campaign — took every inch to stick it to one another. 
 
The most intense swiping came when state Sen. Kirk Dillard, R-Hinsdale, and state Sen. Bill Brady, R-Bloomington, clashed over the state’s finances.
 
“That’s why your business is bankrupt,” Dillard snarled at Brady, whose family is in real estate.
 
A visibly peeved Brady threatened to file a lawsuit, saying that wasn’t true, and began waving his finger at his rival.”
