When is a rookie governor something else? Good question

Rauner, Democrats spar on property taxes as stalemate enters 2nd week - Chicago Tribune
The rookie governor . . . wants lawmakers to approve his pro-business, anti-union agenda as part of a deal, and a property tax freeze is one of the items.
 Am slightly flummoxed over "rookie" here. Promising rookie maybe? Hard-hitting? Candidate for rookie of the year?

Or: Citizen governor? Governor not from the political class? Growth-oriented?

Possibilities abound. Playbook has "rookie," but one can always think outside it.
