SHARE Republicans For Governor Call Out Topinka

“A Chicago Public Radio gubernatorial debate yesterday set the stage for a raucus press conference involving all five Republican candidates for Governor.

After the hour-long debate, candidates took questions from the media in what unraveled into a bare-knuckle discussion of ethics in government.
