The Little Red Porsche in the Illinois Governor's Race

Has to be tough for a candidate when one of the top reporters covering the race can't even seem to manage to get his story straight.

In a question in last night's debate, the four candidates were asked what their biggest 'splurge purchase' has been.

From the Quad City Times:
The four Republican candidates running for Illinois governor are revealing their biggest personal purchases during a campaign that's focused largely on the state's fiscal problems. 
Businessman Bruce Rauner says he splurged during a trip to Italy and bought his wife a nice dress. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford says his home in Chenoa. State Sen. Bill Brady says he bought his wife a red Porsche convertible, while state Sen. Kirk Dillard says his was a crystal chandelier.
The Sun-Times Natasha Koreki took note of the Brady purchase.  And Tweeted it.

 And...if you look closely, you'll see that she got an enthusiastic Re-Tweet from her editor Jim Kirk.

The problem?  Pat Brady isn't running for Governor.  That would be Bill Brady.
