Happy Independence Day, Lake County Republicans!


Fresh off his victory in the United States Supreme Court in the Janus case, Governor Rauner addressed a gathered crowd of over 130 at the Gorton Center in Lake Forest June 28th.

Rauner praised Lake County GOP Chairman and Illinois Republican Party Co-Chairman Mark Shaw for his success building the party locally and his efforts statewide. Rauner also pledged his continued support for other Republican candidates, underscoring party unity and urging those gathered to avoid Mike Madigan’s calculated efforts to divide Republicans by tightly controlling the timing and content of bills he allows to reach the Governor’s desk. “For Madigan, it’s all politics,” said Rauner, decrying the Democrat Speaker’s disregard for good faith negotiation, compromise or good public policy, to the grave detriment of Illinois workers and taxpayers.

Event attendees from Lake County and Chicago emerged from the meeting, energized for an Illinois “red wave.”

The Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff was founded in 1941 and is the longest continually operating political organization of its kind in the area.  Learn more about the event here:
