Trump Together With ...

Your LakeCountyEye has been commissioned to conduct a flash poll: Raise your hand if you have the grit, the determination, and the $1,495 to be Donald Trump's Vice President.

Haha, the Chicago Tribune noted that the question of ...
who would be Trump's running mate is also a question of who would take the job in light of many Republicans' ambivalence about his candidacy. Many establishment types in the party are skipping the GOP convention.

And many of those convention no-shows will be from Illinois. Crain's broke the news, which appeared in the CapitolFax:
at the moment, not one member of Illinois' congressional delegation has said they'll be in Cleveland [except for Congressman Peter Roskam], according to both official and inside sources. Nor is Gov. Bruce Rauner, comptroller Leslie Munger or any statewide GOP official.

Peter Roskam, Lake County's vestigial Congressman, is expected to break ranks with his colleagues, and will be in Cleveland for the four-day convention.  This despite the fact that Roskam is more often seen overseas, in far-flung destinations like Taiwan, Myanmar and Israel.

Ops are advised to look for Roskam centerstage on the GOP convention floor.  Your LakeCountyEye has been told the foot-loose Roskam is a hands-on favorite:

President Trump

Vice-President Roskam
That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Keep your hands visible at all times.
