GOP governor candidates court Indian American group at forum
Feb 9, 2014 10:13 PM -
As the GOP tries to rebuild what one candidate called a "brand problem" with minorities, three of the four Republican candidates for Illinois governor spoke at a forum planned by the Indian American Republican Organization on Sunday night. The forum was mainly cordial, with no mention of the recent scuffles and accusations between Rutherford and Rauner. On topics of the economy and pension reform, the candidates stuck to their much discussed positions, but on the topic of diversity, each tried to stand out as the one who would best represent the needs of the Indian American community.
