Cruz to attend GOP fundraiser in honor of Rauner days before Illinois primary

By Chicago Tribune

The Illinois Republican Party is hoping to profit from the March 15 presidential primary by holding a fundraising dinner in honor of Gov. Bruce Rauner on the Friday before Election Day.

Already, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has confirmed he’ll be there, and all of the current GOP presidential contenders, including Donald Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio, have been invited to the reception and dinner at the Palmer House Hilton. Even some of the former Republican presidential candidates have been asked to attend.

Tickets for the event start at $500 per person and go up to $40,000 to serve as a “Gold Sponsor,” which includes two tables of 10 with a photo opportunity and a one-year membership in the “Governor’s Council.”
