Your Voice, Your Future Roundtable: "Illinois: The Cost of Running"
This one-hour special presentation will examine the record amount of money expected to be pumped into the race for governor. Through taped interviews and live panel discussions, we’ll look at how much money is being spent, who’s donating, and where the money goes. We’ll explain campaign finance rules and hear from voters about how it affects their positions. We’ll hear if they think real people are being priced out of running for office. And we’ll talk with journalists who cover the beat to hear what’s ahead as the primaries near.
