WHEATON - Rumor is that 2014 GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner may be announcing his running mate today. His choice is likely to be Wheaton Councilwoman at Large - Evelyn Pacino Sanguinetti. An attorney, the 43 year old Ms. Sanguinetti is an adjunct professor at John Marshall School of Law and worked for former Attorney General Jim Ryan. Sanguinetti is married, with three children.
Sanguinetti is active among Latino Republicans, and describes herself as a conservative. She is pictured above at Milton Township's Republican Octoberfest with Pedro Anaya, Ronald Almiron, Chris Hage, JT del Alcazar, Angel Garcia, Yvonne Sencial Bolton, Steve Orlando and John Aguilar.
We previously confirmed that Rauner had met with State Senator Karen McConnaughay several times, asking her to be his LG candidate. She declined, and will be seeking re-election to the State Senate. DuPage County GOP Chairman Darlene Ruscitti also turned down Rauner's invitation.
