Herald & Review Voices features conversations with Herald & Review writers, editors and our readers.
In this episode of Voices, entertainment columnist Tim Cain catches up with reporter Tom Lisi on the recent seventh annual Penny Severns Memorial Reception, which featured speeches for Illinois Democratic gubernatorial candidate JB Pritzker, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and others. Cain and Lisi discuss the event, how Democrats continued a message during the reception similar to the one delivered earlier that day by former President Barack Obama at the University of Illinois, and how important downstate Illinois is for candidates like Pritzker to win in November.
