FILE - This Feb. 4, 2014 file photos shows the four candidates running for the 2014 Illinois Republican gubernatorial nomination from left, state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner, taking part in a debate in Naperville, Ill. When it comes to the state's prisons, the four candidates agree they're overcrowded, but none has a clear, short-term solution.

FILE - This April 5, 2012, file photo shows the Tamms Correctional Center in Tamms, Ill. When it comes to the state's prisons, the four Republican candidates for governor including state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner, agree they're overcrowded, but none has a clear, short-term solution. They generally oppose building new lockups, according to their responses to an Associated Press questionnaire about prison policy. All but Rauner said they will at least consider reopening the closed super-maximum security lockup in Tamms, in far southern Illinois. (AP Photo/The Southern Illinoisan, Steve Jahnke, File)

ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, FEB. 23, 2014 AND THEREAFTER - FILE - In this March 17, 1966 file photo, heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali arrives at a Veterans Administration office in Louisville, Ky. to appeal his 1A draft classification. Behind him wearing a hat is his attorney, Edward Jocko of New York. "I ain't got no quarrel with those Viet Cong," he said, setting off on a path that cost him more than three years of his career and nearly put him in prison. Ali became a symbolic, if unlikely, figure of the anti-war movement, though his mind was always more on resuming his career than furthering the cause. (AP Photo/GS)
