SHARE Bruce Rauner says his daughter doesn’t want him to run for governor .... go to jail

When he was up at the Daily Herald/ABC7 candidate forum, Bruce Rauner said his teenaged daughter had specific opinion about his candidacy.

“My youngest daughter said ‘daddy don’t run for governor, I don’t want you to go to jail.'”

Rauner said he would move to Springfield mansion, impose term limits on himself and the legislature. He also said he’s not against unions but the people running the unions.

“We used to do well in Illinois and we lost our way,” Rauner said.

“I’m a self-made business guy,” Rauner said. “I’m proud of that track record, we’re going to come to Springfield, run it like a business and turn it around.”

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford seemed to take issue at Rauner’s attacks on “career politicians.”

“I’ve never been a career legislator, I’ve been a citizen legislator,” Rutherford said.
