Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner offered conflicting statements Tuesday on a political cartoon critics have called racist, first saying he didn't have anything to add to the discussion "as a white male" before walking it back hours later.
On the 21st: When it comes to gun violence, University of Chicago criminologist Harold Pollack says the left and the right need to work together to address the issue. We discuss the scope of the problem in Illinois with a look toward solutions.
