So does a governor need to live in the Governor’s Mansion?
Expect that debate to heat up again… now that Republican Bruce Rauner has pledged that he will do so if elected next year.
It’s similar to a pledge made by Governor Pat Quinn after he took office in 2009. But since then, Quinn has only averaged about 70 nights a year at the Mansion in Springfield.
Quinn now says he will continue to split time between Springfield and Chicago if he wins another term.
