Ives slams Rauner over Trump comments

Friday, Feb 9, 2018

* From the SJ-R’s coverage of Gov. Rauner’s Sangamon County Lincoln Day Dinner speech last night

Rauner said he was confident that 2018 would be successful.

“All of us worked hard last year. 2016 — even though President Trump, unfortunately, lost Illinois by over 16 points — we in Illinois picked up six seats in the General Assembly for the Republicans in 2016,” he said.

* Jeanne Ives campaign

“All of us” worked hard, Governor?

By our scorecard, at least one of “us” wouldn’t even mention President Trump’s name:

    * Per the Chicago Tribune, Rauner “spent the better part of a year refusing to discuss the eventual GOP presidential nominee and wouldn’t even speak Trump’s name.”

    * During the 2016 primary, the Republican governor said he would support whoever the voters chose, including Trump. He also noted that he would do everything he could “to work with that nominee.” Rauner reversed course in a May 2016 interview, announcing that he wouldn’t back Trump if he became the party’s nominee or attend July’s Republican National Convention.

    * Rauner refused to attend the national convention

    * Rauner refused to endorse Trump.

    * Rauner refused to comment on the national race, even after Trump’s primary victory over Ted Cruz in Illinois.

    * The day after the general election, his office issued a statement that didn’t even mention the president-elect and said only that after “a long, grueling campaign cycle, both nationally and locally,” it was time to “put the election behind us” and “come together.”

“The truth is, Governor Rauner’s refusal to mention President Trump’s name is just a symptom of the larger problem,” said Jeanne Ives, a conservative reform Republican for Governor. “Governor Rauner ran as a conservative, without understanding conservatives, which is why – to him – I am a ‘fringe’ candidate. Rauner ran as a conservative, without respecting conservative values, which is why – to him – Trump and his supporters are ‘deplorable.’

“He doesn’t understand us. He doesn’t respect us. That is why it was so easy for him to betray us. No matter what he says now that he has a real conservative challenge in this race, it is just more lies and ‘fake news’ from Governor Rauner.”

    Great strategy for the primary, Rep. Ives but bad strategy for the general election, Rep. Ives. As Governor Rauner said, Trump lost Illinois by 16 points. And you might even lose it by more.


  2. - Ste_with_a_ven - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:08 pm:

    He did more for the party than Mrs. Ives ever did.


  3. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:08 pm:

    –By our scorecard, at least one of “us” wouldn’t even mention President Trump’s name:–

    By my scorecard, this is the first that Ives has latched onto Trump since she got in the governor’s race.

    I thought that was going to be the strategy from the get-go.


  4. - downstate commissioner - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:09 pm:

    Ives believes that all “true” conservatives agree and approve of Trump…


  5. - Amalia - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:12 pm:

    the Ives commercial with all the offensive commentary just appeared again on WGN tv. horrid. divisive. Ives is Trump with better hair.


  6. - Retired Educator - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:13 pm:

    You know this stuff has got to hurt the Governor. It may only be a chipping away, but the chips are flying. When you are at 26% any damage is massive.


  7. - Anonymous - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:14 pm:

    OW points out Rauner is NOT a Republican, he is a Raunerite.
    Absolutely right. Trump is NOT a Republican, he is a Trumpian——-with fly away hair (153 by last count).


  8. - Real - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:15 pm:

    It would be nice if Trump endorses Ives in the primary.


  9. - Real - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:16 pm:

    the Ives commercial with all the offensive commentary just appeared again on WGN tv. horrid. divisive. Ives is Trump with better hair.

    Yeah, it was a really scary ad.


  10. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:21 pm:

    –It would be nice if Trump endorses Ives in the primary.–

    I’m guessing that they’re trolling to see if Trump would say something nice about her, at least.

    McSweeny was tweeting last night, trying to get Trump, Hannity and Pirro’s attention on how Rauner has made a point of keeping clear of Trump.


  11. - Wensicia - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:23 pm:

    Sounds like Ives considers herself one of the deplorables. She fits in well.


  12. - Boris D Spider - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:24 pm:

    She’s truly a daughter of the party of Dennis Hastert, isn’t she?


  13. - Grandson of Man - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:25 pm:

    In that PPP poll yesterday, Trump is way more favorable than Rauner among Republicans. Rauner is barely favorable among Republicans, in that particular poll. Because there is conservative anger over Rauner lying about abortion and the sanctuary state, and avoiding Trump, it makes sense for Ives to attack him on this and bring Trump into it.


  14. - Jack Kemp - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:27 pm:

    Having to listen to Jeanne Ives a few times a month five months out of the year was plenty. Having to hear from this shrill, goofy woman practically every day is painful.


  15. - Ron Burgundy - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:28 pm:

    So much for that not tolerating those that lie, cheat, or steal thing from her biographical ad.


  16. - Benevento - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:29 pm:

    Ives may be repugnant, but she’s not wrong. What is Trump if not the subtext of American conservatism made text? Now that the expectation is for the mask to be off, I don’t really see why the average republican primary voter wouldn’t support her over Rauner.


  17. - 19th ward guy - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:30 pm:

    Trump lost Illinois by 1.7 million votes. What’s the strategy here? The Proft crew just not very smart.


  18. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:36 pm:

    –Trump lost Illinois by 1.7 million votes.–

    No. -900K votes, -17 points.

    But Trump won the GOP primary with 562K votes, 39%.


  19. - annonin - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:36 pm:

    == Trump lost Illinois by 1.7 million votes. What’s the strategy here? The Proft crew just not very smart. ==
    Strategy? Hurt Rauner. It’s not about Ives winning.
    == Ives is Trump with better hair. ==
    Trump has better hair and better instincts.


  20. - Real - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:36 pm:

    Trump lost Illinois by 1.7 million votes. What’s the strategy here? The Proft crew just not very smart.

    This is a primary. I believe the aim is to punish Rauner for his betrayal.


  21. - hisgirlfriday - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:37 pm:

    Some of these comments are weird.

    What does “party of Dennis Hastert” even mean? Party of paying extortion demands to cover up molestation allegations? Why would anyone want to be in the party of Hastert?

    And anytime a man calls a woman “shrill” their criticism is immediately suspect.

    I am no Ives fan but I have no idea how she is any more shrill or goofy than Rauner the pathological liar.


  22. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:42 pm:

    One election at a time.

    “Which is why to him I’m a fringe candidate”
    Nice
    My daughter is a black belt martial artist
    My favorite kick is the wheel kick
    Left leg swings out to the right in a circular fashion wheel up and come back to strike the opponents left temple with the heel. Devastating
    I could watch her do it all day.
    Ives just wheel kicked him with this line


  24. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:44 pm:

    If Ives wins, that’s nice.

    If Ives can burn the bridge, for good, between Rauner and Trump supporters, that’s the main goal of the excercise… Ives said it herself… Ives wants Rauner “Mark Kirk’d”

    That’s the whole ball game.


  25. - DuPage Saint - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:47 pm:

    Real is correct. This is payback. Purity of party
    The Rino hating right never has a candidate pure enough or right enough. I wanted my party to go down with Cruz so we could get that out of our system. Now we have Trump I hope Ives wins because Rauner is just horrid at government the have her crushed in general. Rebuild party with people like Thompson Percy Dirksen normal people and experience politicians


  26. - Anonymous - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:51 pm:

    “”What is Trump if not the subtext of American conservatism made text?”"

    Nice turn of phrase, Benevento. Still pondering it domain.


  27. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 1:14 pm:

    Ives +1
    Rauner -1

    That is what matters today.


  28. - Chris P. Bacon - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 1:23 pm:

    Great that Ives is now trying to opportunistically glom-on to the President but the fact is she’s never lifted a finger for Trump either.


  29. - Honeybadger - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 1:40 pm:

    Ste_with_a_ven - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 12:08 pm:

    He did more for the party than Mrs. Ives ever did.

    Other than infuse $ into the party, badly needed I guess, what did he do to help the GOP?


  30. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 1:59 pm:

    –He did more for the party than Mrs. Ives ever did.–

    Yeah, it’s getting international media play.

    All those millions poured into the state party, yet somehow an avowed Nazi and Holocaust-denier will be on the ballot as a GOP Congressional candidate this November.

    What’s the ROI there, on party-building?


  31. - Pundent - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 2:09 pm:

    Ives doesn’t have enough resources to be competitive or a message that resonates beyond the hard right. It seems to me that she’s nothing more than the messenger for Proft and Uihlein who seems willing to spend at least $3M to prove a point with Rauner. I do expect that all will be forgiven after the primary however.


  32. - Anonymous - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 2:09 pm:

    I voted for DJT over HRC (but would have voted for Sanders over DJT).

    In 2018, I plan to vote for Kennedy and Quinn in the primary. If it’s Pritzker vs Rauner in the GE, I vote Rauner.

    If it’s Pritzker vs Ives, I vote Pritzker. I can’t stand Ives


  33. - Grandson of Man - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 2:17 pm:

    “He did more for the party than Mrs. Ives ever did.”

    It was an empty purchase. He lied to key constituents about something as sacrosanct to them as pro-life. His refusal to negotiate in good faith, hatred of his opponents and insistence that Democrats attack their union supporters caused so much damage and brought his party to the brink of financial disaster.

    Money can’t buy the loyalty that Rauner betrayed when he threw his excellent PR staff under the bus after the budget veto overrides. Those folks were doing a great job for him practically every day, with their messaging.


  34. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 2:58 pm:

    ==–He did more for the party than Mrs. Ives ever did.–==

    Rauner ran on real needs and got elected because of it.

    Then he failed spectacularly.

    Losing an election won’t ruin a party - what ruins them is winning and the showing everyone that they don’t know how to run the Office.


  35. - cdog - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 3:13 pm:

    Good for Ives to stand up for Trump. It looks like nearly half the nation approves of him, per recent pollings.

    If folks could move beyond the divisive rhetoric infused in the approved networks of informationalism, they might realize there is a lot happening in the world of which they are not aware.

    Take opioids. How many were paying attention when the Trump administration coordinated intelligence and military assets to bomb the Taliban’s heroin manufactures that had been operating unchallenged for years? Hear about stopping tons of heroin at the southern border? All Trump leadership, folks.

    All this is probably too conservative for this partisan room but Trump is taking care of many things.

    Speak truth, Ives. Don’t be silenced.


  36. - Ste_with_a_ven - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 3:14 pm:

    -Other than infuse $ into the party, badly needed I guess, what did he do to help the GOP?-
    More money
    Better messaging
    Pick up offices in two consecutive elections
    Provides a bulwark against the likes of Mrs. Ives who would rather us be a ideological purity super minority than a successful big tent.


  37. - Demoralized - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 3:15 pm:

    ==If folks could move beyond the divisive rhetoric ==

    Says the guy speaking out of both sides of his mouth.

    ==All this is probably too conservative for this partisan room ==

    Sheesh


  38. - Demoralized - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 3:16 pm:

    I get Ives is trying to win the primary, but all of her rhetoric doesn’t help her in the general. Illinois general election voters won’t be turned on by someone who supports Trump.


  39. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 3:19 pm:

    ===More money===

    Rauner/Griffin/Uihlein money… 4 white men (and Diana too, but she’s a Democrat, lol) owing a brand.

    ===Better messaging===

    *Enter IPI, Exit BTIA(tm)* … Goldberg ain’t coming back, lol

    ===Pick up offices in two consecutive elections===

    Lost 2 statewide races, Kirk and Munger…

    ===Provides a bulwark against the likes of Mrs. Ives who would rather us be a ideological purity super minority than a successful big tent.===

    LOL… LOL

    That only happened until Rauner signed HB40.

    Until then, the “likes of Ives” and her ilk were with Rauner and Rauner with her.

    Revisionist history, that’s fun.

    –Take opioids. How many were paying attention when the Trump administration coordinated intelligence and military assets to bomb the Taliban’s heroin manufactures that had been operating unchallenged for years? Hear about stopping tons of heroin at the southern border? –

    Trump was coordinating strikes in Afghanistan and tripling heroin seizures at the southern border when he was on The Apprentice? In 2015-2016? Wow, that guy is good.

    The links below might be too fact-based for your liking, but I doubt they will shake your faith in the Trump cult of personality.

    Or that you’ll read them. Maybe it will be on the TV box some day.

    For the record, Afghan heroin isn’t a factor in the U.S. And the opioid epidemic has been spurred not by street drugs, but by the quadrupling of legal opiod scripts due to marketing, not any medical reasons.

    The gop used to be the party of Lincoln, but they have all but completely rejected that heritage. Now it’s the party of Hastert, he sets the moral tone for the gop now. Just ask Trump or Rob Porter or Trent Franks or Ralph Shortey or….the list is endless, really.


  42. - The Blimp - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 4:50 pm:

    ==Afghan heroin isn’t a factor in the U.S==

    Correct, it is Mexico. And you may not like this answer - but it plays into Trump’s wall building fantasy.

    ===Trump lost Illinois by 1.7 million votes. What’s the strategy here? The Proft crew just not very smart.

    True, but they have a clear belief system. Conservatism (or their brand of it) cannot fail, it can only be failed so if it doesn’t win and change the world it’s the fault of the person trying to implement it.


  44. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 5:04 pm:

    –And you may not like this answer - but it plays into Trump’s wall building fantasy.–

    I don’t think it’s been thought through enough to qualify as a fantasy.

    There’s a system of barriers, monitoring posts, checkpoints, aerial and land border patrols, etc., in place now. I haven’t seen any plan for a “wall,” or what it entails.

    I just see a $90B price tag pulled out of thin air and I can smell the meat-a-cookin’.


  45. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Feb 9, 18 @ 5:05 pm:

    word, turns out that one of the two wholesalers that shipped 2.9 million Oxys and Vics to a podunk pharmacy in a tiny town in West Virginia was based in Springfield. No “Afghan Heroin” there. Oddly enough, the family that owned the company decided it was time to sell out about the time the DEA came knocking. Not oddly, the Washington Post wrote about it weeks before our anemic local media picked up the story.
