Interestingly enough, Facebook, Inc. recently contributed $1,000 to her campaign fund.
Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate and State Rep. Jeanne Ives won over some hearts Saturday during a brief appearance to drum up support for her primary campaign in Arlington Heights. […]
Ives, a West Point graduate with a degree in economics and a mother of five, criticized Rauner for signing what she calls the “sanctuary state” bill, the new school funding formula which many see as a bailout for Chicago Public Schools, subsidies for Exelon Corp., and a bill Sept. 28 that allows state health insurance and Medicaid funding for abortion.
Candidate Rauner supported increased coverage for abortions in 2014 but changed his mind in April, saying the state’s focus should be the economy, making his latest move a surprise for conservatives.
“This is the agenda of an Ivy League professor and not a conservative reformer,” said the Wheaton resident of her primary reason for challenging the first-term governor in March’s Republican primary.
