Remember when PE’s Matt Barnum wrote that Bruce Rauner was one of the good Republicans in the Illinois Governor Republican primary? I do.
Remember when Bruce Rauner then won the Republican primary? That was tonight.
Other positive Illinois electoral developments (as cribbed from Facebook friend and PE supporter Jeff C-M):
- Despite an anti-gay campaign against him due to his support for the freedom to marry, IL State Rep. Ed Sullivan is poised to win his GOP primary 58-42 with all precincts reporting!
- The Chicago Tribune reports that the GOP Treasurer primary has been won by Rep. Tom Cross, who faced another anti-gay campaign due to his support for the freedom to marry. With 67% of precincts reporting, Cross leads 58-42. Good news for individual freedom and limited government.
- Pro-marriage IL Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka won her GOP primary unopposed.
- With 89% of precincts reporting, pro-marriage GOP IL State Rep. Ron Sandack is back in the lead by 25 votes!!!
