SHARE Quinn radio ad goes after lack of diversity at Rauner’s firm

Democrat Pat Quinn is taking to the airwaves in his latest attack on Republican challenger Bruce Rauner.

Quinn’s campaign is running a powerful ad exclusively on African-American radio stations, which takes aim at the hiring practices of Rauner’s investment firm.

“Do you know how many professionals work at billionaire Republican Bruce Rauner’s investment firm?” the woman asks. “Fifty-one people. Do you want to guess how many of those employees are African-American? None. Zero. Not a single African-American.”

It continues, with a clip of Rauner from ABC News: “We weren’t finding the folks that, that uh, you know, that weren’t there.”
