“I don’t know, I haven’t seen that article. I’ve been crystal clear about who I am,” Rauner told reporters on Monday. “I’m a native son of Illinois who loves this state passionately. I was born in Chicago, lived basically around here my whole life, raised our six kids here … and I can’t stand to see what’s happening to our state.”
