Several members of the Democratic Party in Illinois have announced their candidacy for governor in opposition of incumbent Republican Governor Bruce Rauner. One of these members is Illinois State Senator Daniel Biss, who represents the 9th Illinois Senate District.
Senator Biss appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning show and discussed the divide between upstate and downstate voters in Illinois, saying that division needs to change if the state hopes to move forward.
One of Governor Rauner's biggest opponents in Springfield has been House Speaker Michael Madigan. Madigan is no stranger to criticism including from Senator Biss, who says Madigan has held Illinois back.
