NPR Illinois

Illinois politicians react to President Trump's varied statements on Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Gov. Rauner signs a pair of gun-control bills while promising to veto another. And the latest campaign finance numbers show the candidates for governor continuing to burn cash at an unprecedented rate. 

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelist Brian Mackey, and guests Amanda Vinicky of Chicago Tonight, which airs on PBS station WTTW; and Chris Mooney, a political scientist at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
