It had been rumored for weeks. Aurora's mayor Richard Irvin announced this week he is entering the race for governor. In launching his bid, he attacked Gov. J.B. Pritzker. But before he could face off against the first term Democrat, Irvin will need to win a crowded Republican primary.

Our panel discusses his chances.

Host Sean Crawford is joined by Statehouse Editor Hannah Meisel, Emeritus Professor Charlie Wheeler and the Chicago Tribune's Chief Political Reporter Rick Pearson.
