Cubs Co-Owner Todd Ricketts to Be Named RNC Finance Chair

Todd Ricketts, of the Cubs-owning Ricketts family, is rumored to be named finance chair of the Republican National Committee. He would replace Steve Wynn, who has resigned over sexual misconduct allegations. The 168-member RNC will vote on the Ricketts appointment at its meeting this week. (Crain's Chicago Business)  Ricketts has been active in Republican and conservative campaigns and fundraising and was nominated to be deputy secretary of commerce under Trump but eventually declined the post because of the difficulty of untangling his financial holdings.
