AURORA – A second-term mayor of one of Illinois' largest cities and a young female downstate state rep unveiled their campaign website as Republican gubernatorial primary team candidates Monday: IrvinBourne.com – Mayor Richard Irvin and State Rep. Avery Bourne (R-Litchfield). 

Their announcement, made via YouTube video, confirmed what Illinois Review.com reported hearing about in mid-December:

The announcement video links Irvin back to his family's slave roots: 

Irvin/Bourne join several other candidate teams vying to challenge JB Pritzker in November: Gary Rabine and Aaron DelMar; Senator Darren Bailey and Stephanie Trussell, former Senator Paul Schimpf and Carol Scholfield, as well as a few others that have little name recognition or financial backing thus far.
