We spoke with State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor, before a campaign event at Candlelight Inn in Rock Falls.

Last week, he revealed at a news conference that an employee in the state treasurer's office had made claims against him, later saying that they involved harassment. Rutherford called the claims false. In part two of the interview, Rutherford declined to give specifics.

Rutherford is one of four candidates for the GOP nomination for governor. The others are state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard and businessman Bruce Rauner.
