It’s now been 4 days since the Supreme Court draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked and Ken Griffin’s handpicked gubernatorial candidate Richard Irvin still hasn’t told Illinoisians where he stands on protecting reproductive rights.
Instead, Irvin has been taking in baseball games and a new influx of $25 million dollars from Ken Griffin.
Does Irvin think Roe should be overturned? Would he seek to institute a harsh abortion ban like we’ve seen in Texas and Oklahoma? Does he agree with his running mate Avery Bourne that there should be no exceptions to abortion, including in cases of rape and incest?
Irvin’s silence is deafening and Ken Griffin knows it. Will $25 million more be enough to drown out Irvin’s flailing strategy of avoiding voters and the press?
Irvin’s campaign team found the time to comment on baseball this week, but can’t be bothered to weigh in on women’s fundamental rights. Illinois voters deserve more.
