The four Republican candidates for governor will talk business issues in Mount Prospect this morning, in the first forum of the 2014 campaign where all will be in the same room.

State Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington, state Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa and Winnetka businessman Bruce Rauner have traded barbs in the last week over Rauner's views on the minimum wage, and questions about similar issues are likely to arise today.

The event, hosted by ABC 7, the Daily Herald and the Daily Herald Business Ledger, will stream live online at 8 a.m. at http://abc7chicago.com/live.

The winner of the March 18 primary election will take on Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn in November and carry the hopes of a GOP that hasn't held the Illinois governor's mansion since George Ryan left office more than 10 years ago.
