Jeanne Ives?

From WTTW, 
Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, despite buckets of campaign cash, may be in for a primary fight in his 2018 re-election battle for governor. 
Suburban Republican lawmaker Jeanne Ives (Wheaton) is considering getting in the race, citing her frustration with the governor's signing of HB40, a law that will increase access to abortion for state Medicaid recipients and would continue to make abortion legal in Illinois should the U.S. Supreme Court choose to overturn it.
 My first thought's leave Rauner to the GOP and run as a Third Party along Tea Party principles: all responsible fiscal-policies, good-government, and leave the cultural stuff with the culture 'cause there's a limit to what a Governor of Illinois can do.
