Rauner Appears With Pence At Rosemont Event

Governor Bruce Rauner fully and publicly embraced the Trump administration Friday, appearing arm-in-arm at a Republican fundraising event hosted by Vice President Mike Pence. “Mike Pence, along with President Trump, are doing it for every American, right now,” said Rauner, who previously shied away from openly embracing the President. Pence is touring the Midwest to put a spotlight on local GOP candidates ahead of the 2018 midterms. A group of protesters led by newly appointed director of the Illinois Democratic Party Rep. Christian Mitchell (D-Chicago) outside the event to blast both Rauner and Pence. “I’m out here because the people of Illinois need to know this is Rauner showing his true colors,” said Mitchell. “He’s standing with a vice president and an administration that is racist and misogynist.” (Sun-Times)
