The latest controversy in the race for Illinois governor centers on comments made this month by GOP lieutenant governor nominee Evelyn Sanguinetti.
She told a Republican party event that female candidates possess, quote, “special powers” and a “magical” ability to disarm voters and get them to listen about party candidates and issues.
The Democratic Governors Association issued a press release poking fun at Sanguinetti’s statement and suggesting it shows the Republican ticket is out of touch.
Now Bruce Rauner’s camp has issued its own release, blasting the DGA statement as “sexist” and demanding that Governor Pat Quinn disavow it. No response so far from the Quinn camp.
