Griffin’s Rauner Reboot Slate Continues to Hide From Reporters, Voters
Today, we hit the one-week mark since the announcement that Richard Irvin is running for governor, the centerpiece of Ken Griffin’s Rauner Reboot slate. Since Irvin’s announcement, he has met with a grand total of zero reporters, taken zero questions, and held zero campaign events with voters.

- John Milhiser: 20 days silent
- Tom Demmer: 13 days silent
- Shannon Teresi: 12 days silent
- Steve Kim: 11 days silent
- Richard Irvin and Avery Bourne: 7 days silent
