The millionaire count is from 2011. Take a recount, come up with a lower number, and beat the Dems with it.
If Rauner is smart he’ll run an aggressive campaign. Democrats have run Illinois into the ground. If he wins, there’s little he can do, but it’s a start.
Fact is, the Illinois State Legislature is dominated by Democrats to the point of Super-Majority status in both houses of the legislature.
If all Rauner does is prevent them along with Mike Madigan (IL Speaker of the House, lifetime career politician and Democrat) from making the 66% tax increase Quinn passed 4 years ago permanent and rolls it back, I'd consider a Rauner Governorship to be successful.
