— Former state GOP Chairman Brady backs Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten over Republican Jeanne Ives; Ives, state party fire back – RICK PEARSON
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state’s current Republican leadership — Chairman Tim Schneider, National Committeeman Richard Porter and National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte — came to Ives’ defense in a joint statement that contended “identifying and labeling Pat Brady as a Republican is false and misleading.” Ives weighed in on Twitter, saying: “Of course Pat Brady endorsed Sean Casten. Amoral, ruling class political hacks stick together.” “Pat Brady is a liberal Democrat and has been for some time. Sean Casten may have the backing of political hacks but Jeanne Ives is supported by hard working taxpayers,” the statement said. . .Schneider, who is now coming to Ives’ defense, was Rauner’s hand-picked state GOP chairman and denounced the 2018 ad. He said it did not reflect the Illinois Republican Party, called it a “cowardly attempt to stoke political division” and asked her to apologize and remove it. She did neither. State Republicans who are running a “races to watch” online program to help raise funds for a variety of contenders did not include Ives. State GOP officials said she declined to participate in the fundraising effort, but they support her candidacy.)
