Editor’s note 5/12/16

Gov. Bruce Rauner has distanced himself from Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, but the governor didn’t say why. Is it because Trump would close the country’s borders to Muslims? Maybe not – Rauner wants to close the state’s borders to Syrians. Maybe Rauner, who hasn’t funded social services, worries that Trump would lack compassion for the disadvantaged. Or perhaps Rauner fears that the wealthy but politically inexperienced Trump would cause chaos and disruption in government as he pursues his personal agenda. We hope the governor will clarify. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
