Aurora mayor Richard Irvin is expected to elect a lower Republican candidate if his candidate announces his candidacy for governor next week, sources told the Daily Herald Friday.
State Rep. Avery Bourne of Montgomery County is expected to join Irvin’s ticket Monday at a campaign rally in Aurora, which kicks off the race to win Republican primary on June 28.
Four other candidates are running for office and a chance to field Democratic candidate JB Pritzker.
Irvin has not yet commented, but GOP experts said if the two-year-old mayor, former government aide and former veteran of the military run, he has some interesting information and his rural background is the secret.
“He has a military record, and a representative of the government … I hear a lot of good things about him,” said Republican State Central Committee member Bob Grogan of Downers Grove.
Many Republican voters, however, may want to explain why Irvin pulled Democrats in the 2014, 2016 and 2020 primaries and in the 2017 and 2021 primaries combined.
Irvin voted for Republican in the 2018 primary in Gov. Former Bruce Rauner won.
The mayoral mayor, who may be Lieutenant Governor Pick, Bourne, comes from an agricultural family and serves on housing and education committees. The 29-year-old represents the 95th state government.
Republican fundraiser and Citadel CEO Ken Griffin has said he will donate money to a competitor to deal with Pritzker.
If Griffin imitates Irvin’s actions, “he will have the opportunity to make a lot of money, and there will be a lot of people with Republicans who like to vote and a few who will divide the voting party,” Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale, formerly of Hinsdale. GOP representative for governor and former chairman of DuPage Republican.

In the general election, Pritzker is a strong opponent, but Irvin is a former governor who appears to have a good relationship, appearing together last spring to promote the COVID-19 vaccine, for example.
Meanwhile, the Kane County Democratic Party has been quick to criticize Irvin in a statement released Friday that expressed “his frustration with the mayor.” The party “stands behind” Pritzker, officials said, linking Irvin and Rauner into what could be an election drama.
Rural additives include Palatine Township Highway Commissioner Aaron Del Mar, acting as lieutenant ambassador and Gary Rabine of McHenry County, a Schaumburg businessman who wants to become the next ambassador.
McHenry County Board Vice Chairwoman Carolyn Schofield will join the gubernatorial hope and Sen. Paul Schimpf of Monroe County government as lieutenant governor.
Other competitors are Sen. Darren Bailey of Louisville and venture capitalist Jesse Sullivan of Petersburg.
Applications in the primary began to be published on Thursday and the deadline for writing is March 7-14.
