DAILY HERALD
— Bolingbrook mayor Roger Claar hosted Trump, will go to inauguration – Kerry Lester
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161114/news/161119481/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar got a lot of blowback from local residents when he announced he’d be hosting Donald Trump in town for a September fundraiser. Now he’s making plans to attend the Republican business tycoon’s presidential inauguration. Claar says he jumped on the Trump bandwagon early because he was “tired of Republican leadership in Washington. Democrats weren’t getting anything done, either.” While he knew Illinois — which Tuesday was a blue island among a sea of red states — would go Democrat Hillary Clinton’s way, Claar says money talks, and hosting fundraisers was a way to get some attention. “He wasn’t coming here to build an organization,” Claar says of Trump. “There weren’t a lot of people who stepped up for Trump in Illinois or in the Illinois Republican Party. I was embarrassed about that.” Claar said in recent months he’s had two one-on-one conversations with Trump, including one, in June, where Trump asked for an opinion on who he should select as vice president. “I don’t think he picked him because I suggested it, but I said (Indiana governor) Mike Pence would be outstanding.” As far as keeping in contact? “It’s kind of a one-way street, and that’s his way, not mine,” Claar says. “But if he were to come back to Illinois, I’d want to be part of that, sure.”)
