Two hours before Governor Rauner stepped up to the podium for the State of the State Address in the Illinois House chambers, his GOP primary opponent announced some of the audience members would be in her camp. State Representative Jeanne Ives announced a number of lawmaker endorsements Wednesday. She was flanked by State Reps. Tom Morrison and Margo McDermed as well as State Sen. Tim Bivins in a press conference at Springfield's historic Pasfield House.
Ives believes the endorsement of another lawmaker who wasn't present will carry some extra weight.
Cabello is going a step further, calling for Rauner to resign after he says the Governor previously said he would not sign House Bill 40 which paves the way for public funding of abortions.
