CHICAGO - After spending $3.1 million on ads blasting GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner the Illinois Freedom PAC is pulling the plug on any more TV ads, and Republicans are getting their mailboxes filled with Rauner mailers like the one that attacks his three GOP opponents on one side and introduces "the Mrs." on the other. (see below)
Mrs. Rauner has not been on the Illinois campaign trail at all with her husband. She has not reached out to Republican women voters and isn't appearing at GOP Ladies' events. But if Rauner's campaign is successful, she'll be Illinois' next First Lady and the Illinois GOP Women's titular leader. The Rauners have six children.
