Illinois Democrats are not letting up in their attempts to use Republican Bruce Rauner’s wealth against him.
Rauner’s vast fortune… and the claim that it leaves him out-of-touch with average Illinoisans… was a recurring theme during Democratic Party activities that coincide with Governor’s Day at the Illinois State Fair.
During a speech to party faithful at the Crowne Plaza, Governor Pat Quinn referred to Rauner as King Midas, and joked that Rauner believes a rising tide “lifts all yachts.”
Quinn says he believes in government for the many, while Rauner supports government for the money. The GOP gets its chance to fire back today, Republican Day at the fair.
