Illinois State Rifle Association endorses Rauner today
Tuesday, Oct 16, 2018
* ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson told WJPF this morning that his group will be endorsing Gov. Bruce Rauner today. Rauner has a southern Illinois press conference this morning. I’ll update when I receive a press release.
“We think he is by far the best candidate for governor, particularly for gun owners,” Pearson told host Tom Miller.
With this nod, Rauner continues running a Republican primary campaign in October. Sam McCann’s candidacy must have him spooked but good. Either that or he’s trying to ease his drag on Downstate Republican candidates.
