Gov. Rauner Endorses Congressman Shimkus

From Northern Public Radio– Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner says 15th District Congressman John Shimkus can play a role in promoting his “Turnaround Agenda” in Washington.

Rauner calls Shimkus a model for a party that seeks to help small business owners and farm families. The governor says Shimkus has helped Republicans in their fight against longtime Democratic House Speaker.
