CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Why Trump’s big win means problems for Gov. Rauner – Rick Pearson and John Byrne  (DIERSEN: In Illinois, in your county, in your township/ward, and in your municipality, after Trump won the Republican nomination, which “Republican” activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. a) failed/refused to support Trump and b) demonized, denigrated, or condemned Trump and/or his supporters?  One could argue that the aforesaid should immediately resign from any government and/or political positions that they might hold as Republicans.  Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform.  Trump has promised to defend and advance the Republican Party platform.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-bruce-rauner-donald-trump-met-1110-20161109-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The impending arrival of Donald Trump in the White House is creating a strange political landscape for Bruce Rauner to navigate at the governor’s mansion. The Republican governor spent the better part of a year refusing to discuss the eventual GOP presidential nominee and wouldn’t even speak Trump’s name. At the time, Rauner was trying to walk the tightrope of not providing Democrats with fodder to attack him during their budget battle while also not invoking Trump’s wrath by directly criticizing him. Now not only will Rauner continue to be asked to weigh in on Trump and every controversial move the future president makes, but he’ll be doing so with his own 2018 re-election bid at stake. Rauner remains the undisputed leader of the Illinois Republican Party, and Trump enjoyed widespread support Downstate in Tuesday’s election, even if he lost badly to Democrat Hillary Clinton in Chicago and the suburbs. Trump won 92 of 102 Illinois counties and racked up 50- and 60-percentage point margins in far southern Illinois. Disagreeing with Trump carries great political risk for Rauner among a key voting bloc two years from now. The great irony of Tuesday’s election for the governor is that as much as he and other top Illinois Republicans avoided or ran away from their party’s presidential nominee, Trump and his strong showing Downstate is a big reason Rauner was able to cut into Democratic nemesis Michael Madigan’s supermajority. Rauner wasn’t quite ready to field a spate of Trump questions the day after the election. The governor has kept a low public profile the past few weeks, and that continued Wednesday. His office issued a statement that didn’t mention the president-elect and said only that after “a long, grueling campaign cycle, both nationally and locally,” it was time to “put the election behind us” and “come together.”)

HERALD NEWS
— Trump lost in Will County, but support was strong  Many wanted Trump, but weren’t saying – BOB OKON  (DIERSEN: For the November 8, 2016 election, how focused were a) the officers of your Republican township/ward party organization, b) the officers of your Republican county party organization, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, and d) the officers of the IRP on electing local candidates as opposed to electing Trump/Pence?)
http://www.theherald-news.com/2016/11/09/trump-lost-in-will-county-but-support-was-strong/a1ltfj5/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump’s victory may have stunned some, but not everyone. Even in Illinois, the only old Rust Belt state that went for Hillary Clinton, some were sensing a strong undercurrent for Trump. “I talk to a lot of people in my position,” said Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar, referring to conversations with other mayors. “One out of 50 was voting for Clinton. The vast majority were going to vote for Trump, but they weren’t going to talk about it because Clinton’s supporters were so vocal.” Claar was an open Trump supporter who threw a fundraiser for the candidate and was a Trump delegate at the Republican convention. But, Claar said supporting Trump could bring on a backlash that many wanted to avoid. Clinton won Will County with just less than 50 percent of the vote compared with Trump’s 44 percent. But Trump got almost 130,000 votes, and not all those voters were quiet about who they were supporting. Will County Board member Steve Balich, R-Homer Glen, said one question he faced frequently as he campaigned door-to-door was how he was voting for president. “Not everyone wanted to talk,” Balich said. “But when they did, usually they said, ‘Are you for Trump?’ ”  Balich was. But even the party establishment didn’t want local candidates to talk about Trump, he said. “The establishment Republicans were saying, ‘We can’t win Illinois. Don’t talk about Trump,’ ” Balich said. Signs of support  Balich not only talked about Trump, he passed out 350 Trump campaign signs because people wanted them. Balich started out with 100 signs he bought from the Will County Republican Party, which obtained them from the Trump campaign. After passing out the first 100 signs, he said, “I went back and got another 200. I passed all those out. I went back and got another 50 and passed them out.” There was speculation that Trump would hurt local Republicans by being on the top of the ballot. But in the days before the election, Will County Republican Party Chairwoman Kathy Havel said she expected Trump would help local candidates, noting the high demand for signs. “I thought he helped a lot,” Balich said of his campaign in District 7, which saw him re-elected. “But I didn’t run away from him. I don’t know what other people did.”)
