* We talked about this a bit yesterday, but here’s part of the Sun-Times story about Gov. Rauner’s editorial board visit…
The governor was also asked if he had any thing he wanted to “do-over” from his first term. […]
He also said he would have spent “even more time trying to get groups of legislators together,” instead of focusing on one legislator at a time.
“The [Illinois House] speaker [Mike Madigan] can rule with an iron fist and fear. If we can get them as groups to stand up. People, the caucus, realizes that. Many of the Democratic members realize what I’m working for and actually would help, but they’re scared. And we need to get them united as groups of people,” Rauner said.
Groups of legislators? Like what? The Black Caucus? The Downstate Caucus? Women? Chicagoans? Greens? Which one of those groups would unite with him against Madigan?
