Bruce Rauner says the theme of Thursday’s joint forum with the GOP candidates for governor appeared to be “Beat Up Brucey.”
Rauner was a frequent target of his opponents, over his views on the minimum wage and allegations that he used clout to get his daughter into an elite school. But Rauner got in his own shots against his challengers.
He accused Treasurer Dan Rutherford of taking large amounts of union money… prompting Rutherford to accuse Rauner of spreading false info about him. Rauner also mocked Bill Brady for losing to Pat Quinn four years ago.
