RealClearPolitics.com rates this as a tossup. Amazing for IL although Rauner will have to rack up a huge majority downstate to overcome the voter fraud in Chicago
Good, I’m glad he went and he made the other guy look bad, which is also good.
Rauner got a polite welcome, and for this group, anyway said all the right things.
Right now, were not getting results, were getting a lot of talk. Talks cheap, he said.
Theres a level of discontent with the present governor, said Country Club Hills pastor Keith Williams. People are hurting in so many different ways, that we have to listen to everybody.
The Republicans have not controlled either house of the Illinois legislature since the 90’s. What can a Rep. governor do with all the fruitcakes?
The Illinois Republican Party is a joke. They suck at virtually everything.
Fortunately for them, the rat party is so discredited, Rauner might fall over the finish line. Even the blacks in Chicago are starting to see which side their bread has gun powder residue on.
Is Rauner a real Republican or a RINO?
RINO Combiner, close bud of Rahm.
