Rauner Declines Republican Primary Debate Invitation

Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign says thanks, but no thanks. The Rauner camp has declined an invitation from WMAY and the State Journal-Register to participate in a Republican primary debate against challenger Jeanne Ives next month.

The Ives campaign had agreed to take part, but without Rauner’s participation, the event has been canceled.

WMAY and the SJ-R will sponsor a debate with the Democratic candidates for governor in February.
