Labor Groups Abandon Anti-Rauner Ad Campaign


A coalition of labor unions is ending its advertising push against GOP candidate for governor Bruce Rauner… with a week to go until the primary. 

 

The Illinois Freedom PAC… with funding from AFSCME, teachers unions, and other labor groups… had spent more than three million dollars on anti-Rauner ads.  A spokesman for the group tells Crain’s Chicago Business that it accomplished its mission of informing voters about another side of the Republican frontrunner. 

 

But the decision to drop the campaign now raises questions about whether the group thinks it’s too late to affect the outcome of next Tuesday’s vote.
