From Capitol Fax this week: “Incumbent Republican Governor Bruce Rauner remains extremely vulnerable…Against a generic Democrat, Rauner trails 37% to 49%” Do you know what this means? Even taken with a grain of salt, this poll says that Bruce Rauner is beatable. This also means that, right now, we have to do everything we can to make
