Rauner Plans to Push Term-Limits
Rauner delivered a campaign-style speech Monday in Chicago. Relying on a teleprompter, he spoke for less than 10 minutes and wouldn't take reporters' questions.
The first-term Republican says Illinois politics needs new ideas and faces. He says he'll be pushing term limits during a two-day state tour.
Rauner backed term limits in his 2014 gubernatorial campaign, but a judge found a signature-driven ballot question was unconstitutional. The same judge also threw out a measure proposing changes to how the state draws its political boundaries.
A revamped redistricting measure is pending review by the Illinois Supreme Court after a Cook County judge found it unconstitutional for November's ballot.
