For a break from the usual softball interviews, watch Mark Maxwell’s 15-minute interview of Governor Bruce Rauner.
His questions largely reflect arguments made against Rauner by J.B. Pritzker and Illinois Democrats, but that’s OK — he put those arguments to Rauner clearly and demanded answers. When Rauner gave unresponsive answers Maxwell repeated his questions firmly.
Pritzker must be forced to submit to the same kind of interview. He has not yet given a single, serious interview. The problem is whether there’s anybody in the Springfield press corps informed enough about right-of-center perspective to do the job, and with the guts to demand answers.
