In response to an AFSCME-backed attack ad (HERE), the Bruce Rauner campaign began airing a new television spot today.
Chip Englander, Rauner's campaign manager stated, “Of the four Republicans running for governor, Pat Quinn’s special interest friends are only attacking one: Bruce Rauner. That’s because they know Pat Quinn and all the other candidates are part of what’s wrong with Springfield. They’ve all helped push taxes and spending higher and supported bad deals with Springfield special interests. They know Bruce is the only real threat to the failed status quo in Springfield and will say anything to try to stop him. The people of Illinois can see right through this desperate ploy.”
