Illinois' lieutenant governor is still on the move. “The main complaint to (Gov. Bruce Rauner and me during the campaign) was that anything south of I-80 is not only forgotten, it's downright deleted,” Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti told a Republican luncheon in Springfield Thursday. “And so, because of that, Bruce and I cannot stop touring now. You cannot stop us, and I firmly believe in Peoria that they're about to pass an ordinance where we're no longer welcome there because they're tired of seeing us every five minutes.”

Sanguinetti says she is the first Latina lieutenant governor in the nation's history and that she will continue to push women and Hispanics to vote Republican. Sanguinetti has been shielded from reporters' questions since she joined the Rauner ticket more than a year ago. A spokesperson said there was no time for interviews before or after the luncheon, and she did not even take questions from the paying guests.
