So far it’s just a rumor… but one that isn’t being confirmed or denied by the lawmaker at the center of it.
A conservative website claims Republican state senator Sam McCann is considering a third-party run for governor this fall.
McCann is on the record expressing reservations about his party’s nominee for governor, Bruce Rauner.
The Illinois Review website quoted a conservative activist who says he’s heard that McCann has talked with the Illinois Education Association and other groups about possible support.
McCann has declined to comment on the speculation.
