CHICAGO - Not only did GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady make news Tuesday when he announced his 2014 running teammate to be Long Grove's Maria Rodriguez, he raised a few eyebrows during an interview on Chicago talk station 890 AM with John Kass.
According to Brady, both Rauner and Dillard have so-called RINO problems. For Rauner, it's his association with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. For Dillard, it's his past support for President Obama, appearing in a television ad during his 2008 campaign.
Brady told WLS, "80 percent of those polled by a We Ask America poll say that if they know you were supportive of Rahm Emanuel, meaning Bruce Rauner, it's a non-starter. They won't support you as a Republican candidate for governor."
The poll asked likely Republican voters if they would be more or less likely to vote for a candidate if they were friends and political allies with Rahm Emanuel. 83 percent said they would be less likely to vote for that candidate, according to Greg Durham of We Ask America.
