On the eve of Governor’s Day at the 2016 Illinois State Fair, Republicans gathered at the Illinois REALTORS® headquarters in Springfield for a fundraiser. Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner spoke to members of his party during this informal gathering.
It is a state fair tradition for the current governor to invite special guests to the Governor’s Day event on the fairgrounds. Members of the opposition party then rally on the fairgrounds during their own day. Democrats Day was celebrated today.
