Even as he vows not to spend too much time dwelling on it, Dan Ugaste readily admits he’s not surprised to hear rumblings about the Illinois GOP endorsement process being rigged in favor of the likes of Gov. Bruce Rauner.
Dan Ugaste is convinced the best way for the Republican Party to minimize the potential damage brought on by Illinois Lottery Control Board Chairman Blair Garber’s recent social media rebuke of East St. Louis as the “sh**hole of the universe” is for GOP leaders to face it head on.
Four Republican senators made it clear to Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) officials how upset they were with the school funding holdup at Tuesday's Senate Education Committee hearing on the SB650 Mandate Waiver.
Dan Ugaste thinks the issue of where the state of Illinois goes from here has reached such a critical point he wants voters to do their homework in knowing everything they can about the candidates they’re thinking of supporting.
Six Illinois Republican lawmakers have moved to block a bill Gov. Bruce Rauner signed in August exempting illegal immigrants from being deported if local authorities apprehend them on unrelated matters.
