Battle over TV message intensifies in governor’s race

SHARE Battle over TV message intensifies in governor’s race

Bruce Rauner’s campaign is hitting back in response to a series of attack ads that began last weekend, charging that “Pat Quinn’s special interest friends” are behind it.

The new ad released today by Rauner’s campaign is a sign that his campaign had ample lead time to prepare for the attack.

“Of the four Republicans running for governor, Pat Quinn’s special interest friends are only attacking one: Bruce Rauner. That’s because they know Pat Quinn and all the other candidates are part of what’s wrong with Springfield. They’ve all helped push taxes and spending higher and supported bad deals with Springfield special interests,” said campaign manager Chip Englander. “They know Bruce is the only real threat to the failed status quo in Springfield and will say anything to try to stop him. The people of Illinois can see right through this desperate ploy.”
