Rauner Puts Big Money Ahead of Working Families

Gov. Rauner should stop campaigning and start governing

Illinois Working Together Campaign Director Jake Lewis released the following statement in regards to Ken Griffin's $20 million campaign donation to Gov. Bruce Rauner:

"Never has the Rauner re-election strategy been clearer. On the same day the state's bill backlog tops $14 billion, the governor released a new campaign ad and his political campaign raked in $20 million from Illinois' richest man. Rauner's game plan is simple: spend millions of dollars to paper over his abysmal record of failure as governor. If Rauner truly wanted to fix Illinois, he would drop the big money political games and do his job."
