BLOOMINGTON - Wednesday morning, in an interview with Robert Rees from Cities 92.9 FM, Chicago businessman Bruce Rauner spoke about his term limits ballot initiative. In response to those that say elections are the way to set term limits, Rauner said "That's baloney," and incumbents hold the advantage.
Rauner said gay marriage, like term limits, should be determined by a statewide referendum. He also said he is "pro-union," but the government union bosses create a conflict of interest when those bosses use their taxpayer-funded benefits to buy influence with politicians.
In the interview he addressed the question whether funded attack ads against Congressman Aaron Schock last fall as a way to discourage Schock from running for governor. Rauner told Rees, "That is absolutely false. That's political rumor mill baloney. I like Aaron Schock I have supported [sic], I've donated to his campaigns in the past. I think very highly of him."
