Who will lead the Illinois Republican Party to better electoral outcomes to advance conservative reform policies in the state? If GOP insiders have their way, they'll maintain control. On this edition of Illinois Rising, Dan Proft and Brian Timpone hear the details of a rigged process to elect new leadership for the state party, and a lawsuit challenging just that. They also discuss a debate on the future of the party between Proft and former GOP Chairman Pat Brady. And at the local level, Proft and Timpone talk to Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau on his fight for good government.
