Durkin: Purveyor Of Debt In State Drowning In Debt

Illinois House GOP Minority Leader Jim Durkin is now facing a primary challenge from conservative reformer and Burr Ridge Mayor, Mickey Straub. Durkin is a career politician that has been in the General Assembly for almost two decades with little success to show. His failed leadership was on full display when ⅓ of his caucus voted for the record-breaking income tax hike with zero reforms, not to mention the Durkin's glaring conflict of interest in representing municipal governments in his legal practice. Mickey Straub says he is running for office to put Illinois on a new path and solve problems in Springfield as he’s done as Mayor of Burr Ridge. Mickey Straub, candidate for the 82nd District, joins Dan and Amy to discuss.
