(CBS) — Some top Republicans seem to be keeping their distance from comments presidential front-runner Donald Trump has made about the family that owns the Chicago Cubs, reports WBBM political Editor Craig Dellimore.
A member of Cub’s owner Tom Rickett’s family donated $3 million to a Political Action Committee running ads against Donald Trump. The outspoken candidate went on Twitter to say Ricketts the family “They better be careful, they have a lot to hide.”
Governor Bruce Rauner quickly ducked the issue. He says the Republican race has been “wild” and he is not commenting on any of it. He says his focus is on keeping Illinois strong.
