State Week: Republican Primary, Tax Returns, Progressive Income Tax

Rep. Jeanne Ives continues her campaign to deny Gov. Bruce Rauner renomination as the Republican candidate for governor — a race in which Congressman John Shimkus, the Illinois delegation's senior Republican, is declining to endorse.

Then, do voters care whether candidates release detailed tax returns — or any tax returns — and should they?

Finally, a name from Illinois politics past surfaces as a potential challenger for Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler and Brian Mackey, and guest Greg Hinz of Crain’s Chicago Business.
