Join Carol and Jack for an hour with Jim Edwards, Executive Director of the Illinois Republican Renaissance PAC
The mission of the Renaissance PAC is selecting principled candidates that will bring integrity back to Illinois politics is critical to the State of our State.

Illinois has become infamous for its corruption and politicians that failed to live up to their promises of "balancing the budget." Currently, the Illinois's deficit through mid-2011 is estimated at $11 billion to $13 billion—close to 50% of the expected $26.7 billion in available revenue for the coming fiscal year, which begins July 1.
Illinois health-care and social-service agencies wait three months or more to get paid by the state. Our state pension system is the worst-funded in theU.S. Last year Illinois borrowed nearly $3.5 billion to make its annual pension payment and state auditors estimate that the pension systems are underfunded by $62 billion.
Illinois lawmakers have little appetite for drastic spending cuts but hesitate very little to propose income-tax increases. Although House Leaders concede that there is a "need for budget reform," state legislators seem to be having the same conversations today about reform that they were having a year ago. Our current budget continues to leave the state borrowing for short-term operations and postponing its bills. Unless we are able to help "principled" candidates win election throughout Illinois, the situation will continue to decline.

This is why the Mission of the IRR-PAC is critical to the state of our State. The IRR-PAC finds, vets, supports, educates and endorses principled candidates who have the courage and conviction to challenge the political status quo. The candidates we endorse for state legislator have promised to balance the budget, end the corruption, create jobs, lesson the burdens placed on state businesses and bring integrity back to Illinois state politics.
