Governor Bruce Rauner has officially announced that he will be running for re-election.

Rauner released a video earlier this morning saying that he wants to continue to fight for Illinois.

According to his website, Rauner plans to "make Illinois a state where families and businesses thrive once again."

The governor stopped in Pontiac today to advocate for public safety, with Representative Tom Bennett, and a couple of local public safety officials.

He spoke on some things he's proud to have done with his time in office and some things he hopes to fix if he were to be re-elected as governor.

"The three biggest changes we have not yet achieved are to bring down our property tax burden," says Governor Rauner.

"We also need to roll back Madigan's income tax hike that Speaker Madigan forced through the General Assembly over my veto last June," he says. "And the third thing we need to do is achieve term limits on elected officials."

Rauner says Republicans need to focus on what they do agree on.
