Local, State Republican Candidates to Visit Lake Forest

Bruce Rauner is running for governor in the Republican primary this spring.

A number of candidates for Republican offices are expected to speak Saturday at a forum hosted by the Women's Republican Club of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.

Club President Kim Madden said the candidates scheduled to attend include Bob Dold, who is running for Congress in the 10th District; Carla Wyckoff, who is running for Lake County clerk; Kirk Dillard and Bruce Rauner, who are running for Illinois governor; and David Stolman and Jeri Atleson, who are running for Lake County treasurer.

The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. and is expected to run until at least 11:30 a.m. the Gorton Community Center, Madden said. The candidates will speak in the order in which they arrive, she said. Each candidate is expected to have 5-10 minutes to talk, she said.

Bruce Rauner, who is running for Illinois governor in the Republican primary, will visit Lake Forest this week as he wraps up a weeklong tour of the state.

Rauner is scheduled to speak at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Gorton Community Center, his campaign's communications director said.

The Lake Forest visit is part of a tour that began Monday and is expected to include more than 30 stops this week.

Rauner, a venture capitalist, has raised more than $4 million for his campaign, including $1 million of his own money, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The primary election is March 18.
