CHICAGO - The Quinn and Rauner gubernatorial campaigns are investing heavily in digital communications this election cycle.
Democrat Pat Quinn has hired Christopher Hass as its digital director. Hass worked on Obama's re-election and Organizing for Action, and is in charge of a nine-person digital team for the Quinn campaign.
Illinois Review is told the Rauner campaign has also invested in digital campaigning. Although the Republican team is slightly smaller in head-count.
The Rauner vs. Quinn campaign is expected to be one of the most expensive and competitive gubernatorial races in the country.
