Rauner, Ives Spar in Contentious Debate
In what might be their only joint appearance before the GOP primary, Governor Rauner and challenger Jeanne Ives faced off yesterday before the "Chicago Tribune" editorial board with Ives on the attack. The two interrupted each other repeatedly. Governor Rauner said only if he's elected will Democrats be blocked from controlling the legislative map for the next ten years. Ives said Rauner's gotten nothing done in four years, and nothing would be different in another four. Ives also had Rauner on the defensive on abortion, taxes, school funding and immigration. Rauner said he's set the stage for reform in his second term.
