Hardiman announces run for governor

August 17, 2013 (CHICAGO)

"Now all my business is out in the public, I'm running for governor," he said. "Instead of me running for cover, I'm running for governor."

Hardiman prayed with supporters before making his announcement.

He was arrested this spring after his wife said he punched and kicked her. She later asked that the charges be dropped.

Hardiman says he wants to end corruption in the state and provide more resources for schools.
