Chicago – In the wake of the 2018 election which saw the Democrats winning every statewide election, and picking up seats in both the Illinois House and Senate, Illinois Republicans have to rebuild. But based on what principles? The values of the conservatives, who were represented last March by Rep Jeanne Ives, or are the arguments of Republican moderates, who say conservatives can’t win statewide in Illinois?
And now that Bruce Rauner’s checkbook is closing, who will financially support the state Republicans in their effort to rebuild?
In this panel discussion from the City Club of Chicago, Radio host, Dan Proft, who is a former Republican candidate for Governor, is joined by former GOP Party Chairman, Pat Brady, and Chicago Tribune columnist Kristin McQueary, as they discuss… The Future of the Republican Party of Illinois.
Moderating the panel discussion is former Rep Tom Cross, who lead the Republicans in House for years, and is now on the IL State Board of Education.
