Illinois Republican Primary

The Republican contenders for governor are facing questions about their roles in a five-year-old admissions scandal at the University of Illinois.  

The scandal involved some politicians using clout to get students enrolled. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Sen. Kirk Dillard have acknowledged their names are on the list the University of Illinois maintained of lawmakers who called to check on applications. They were asked about it at a televised debate last week.  

Host Jamey Dunn and guests Charlie Wheeler (UIS), Nicole Wilson (24/7 News), and Andy Maloney (Chicago Law Bulletin) analyze the recent Republican primary debate for Governor and discuss other primary issues, the budget, and upcoming bills.
