A group hoping to change the way Illinois draws its political boundaries is acknowledging flaws in its failed campaign while pledging to make another attempt in the next several years.

Deborah Harrington is head of Yes for Independent Maps. She says the group will put lessons learned in the campaign to good use. Cook County Circuit Court Judge Mary Mikva ruled Friday that the redistricting measure and another calling for term limits didn’t meet constitutional requirements for getting on the November ballot.

Rauner Denies Connection to Intimidation by Private Investigators

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate businessman Bruce Rauner participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

Bruce Rauner says he had nothing to do with armed investigators coming up to people who signed nominating petitions for the Libertarian Party.
