— Jeanne Ives Wins Notable Endorsement in Republican Governor’s Race
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s been a good week for State Rep. Jeanne Ives, as she picked up another endorsement in her campaign to unseat Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner. In a tweet, Ives announced that she had won the endorsement of the Wheeling Republican Party in landslide fashion, winning 90 percent of the vote on Saturday. According to Ives, there were more Republican votes cast in Wheeling Township alone than in a staggering 89 of Illinois’ 102 counties during the 2014 primary season. Her victory comes just days after the Chicago Republican Party handed her an overwhelming victory in a straw poll. Ives beat Rauner 17-3 in that vote, which was conducted by the party’s Central Committee in Chicago.)
