This week on Under the Dome ...

The Illinois State Board of Education has made a bold request for state funding. Will they get it?

Have plans for Valentine's Day? You might consider spending some quality time listening to Gov. Bruce Rauner's budget address on Feb. 14. We'll preview what he might say.

Also, Gov. Rauner is debuting a new, 15-minute campaign commercial featuring a wiretapped conversation between then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich and J.B. Pritzker. We'll talk about the strategy.

And finally, the governor's campaign this week made clear that Rauner thinks former KKK leader David Duke is a racist. We'll explain why that needed to be said.

All this and more coming up next on this week's episode of Under the Dome.
