The four gubernatorial candidates are set to debate at a critical point in the primary race for the GOP nomination.
Bruce Rauner was the first to enter the ballroom, shaking hands up and down the aisles, walking up to each person and introducing himself: “Bruce Rauner.”
He, as well as Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford and Sens. Bill Brady, R-Bloomington and Kirk Dillard, R-Hinsdale, will spar at the event hosted by the Illinois Manufaturers’ Association.
There’s much fresh news happening in the race this week.
The Sun-Times today reported on Rauner’s ties to charter schools.
On Monday, the Sun-Times first reported that the employee behind the allegations against Rutherford resigned.
The primary is set for March 18th.
