Rauner Skips GOP Event Over Pastor's Controversial Comments

Republican nominee for governor Bruce Rauner is backing out of a GOP event in the Quad Cities… over concerns about statements made by the pastor who had been invited to give the invocation. 


That pastor, Don Johnson, is an African-American who says President Obama’s policies are “anti-Biblical” and “pro-Islam,” and who accuses Obama of… quote… “homosexualizing the military.”  Rauner’s campaign says there’s no place in politics for such inflammatory rhetoric.


Local Republicans asked Johnson not to attend after Rauner objected… but when Rauner cancelled anyway, the Rock Island GOP re-invited Johnson to give the prayer and a short speech.
