Is the election day pressure getting to Bruce Rauner? We report. You decide.
This is embarrassing. Governor Bruce Rauner blames Illinois House Speaker no less than 31 times in 12 minutes.
Remember when Rauner and Dan Proft viciously attacked pro-life Sen. Sam McCann (R-Plainview)? Real GOP Illinois does. We remember it all too well. Governor Rauner spent $5 million against McCann in a botched/bungled campaign effort mismanaged by Proft. After the political dust settled, McCann emerged triumphant in a real-life David v. Goliath saga. Dan Proft knows how […]
Rauner is bleeding from a case of extreme social liberalism and is in want of a political tourniquet before the March 20th primary against Ives. Without a challenge from the right, would Rauner have vetoed the Democrats’ bill to license gun dealers? Unknown. Once the threat is removed from the right, will Rauner stand up […]
Governor Rauner’s $4.9 million annual executive office budget lists 44 staffers, an average of $114,000 for each staffer. Under Rauner, some staffers earn $198,000 plus per year. Goldberg was paid $180,000. Former Illinois Policy Institute staffer-turned Rauner chief of staff Kristina Rasmussen was paid $170,000, a hair shy of Democrat Pat Quinn’s salary as Governor. […]
After weeks of cowardly dodging the issue, Governor Rauner has promised to veto a gun measure that would have required the state to license gun dealers. Rauner made the veto promise during an interview with WJPF radio in southern Illinois, conveniently a week before the March 20th GOP primary. The Chicago Sun-Times reports Rauner will veto […]
Um, um, um, it sounds like Governor Rauner once again is desperate not to offend his Democrat friends on gun control measures. Rauner was squirrelly/noncommittal/fidgety on the Gun Dealer Licensing Act when reporters asked him about whether he plans to support the legislation on a Moline campaign stop Friday. “So, the federal government already regulates, um, […]
Jeanne Ives, the Republican challenger to Governor Bruce Rauner has penned an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal, “Rauner Not the Answer to Illinois’ Problems,” challenging a piece praising the failed Governor. Subscribers can read the response here. “Regarding James Taranto’s “The Weekend Interview with Bruce Rauner: Bruce Rauner vs. the Illinois ‘Mafia’” (March […]
Governor Bruce Rauner is telling his supporters he “may” veto the gun control bills that just passed the Illinois House. What does “may” mean? Will Rauner keep his promise to GOP voters on the Second Amendment? He “may.” Will he stand up for the rights of law-abiding gun owners or will he bow down to […]
Rauner’s back to his old anti-corruption campaign theme again. Maybe if he keeps saying it, GOP voters will buy it, or so his campaign brainiacs believe. In 2014, Illinois voters were fed up with Governor Pat Quinn. After 16 years of Democrat rule and destruction, we will willing/desperate to give Bruce Rauner a chance. He […]
