Governor Bruce Rauner is continuing to push for term limits… and for anyone other than Mike Madigan to be speaker of the Illinois House. Rauner joined Republican legislative candidates in Springfield to sign what he calls the People’s Pledge.
Rauner says it’s time for fresh ideas and to move out politicians who have been in office for too long. But the governor refused to say whether House Republican leader Jim Durkin should also be disqualified from being Speaker. Durkin has served a total of nearly 20 years in the General Assembly.
