Three Questions Bruce Rauner Refused to Answer Yesterday

Chicago, IL – Bruce Rauner gave a masterclass in question dodging yesterday, refusing to provide answers on some of the pressing issues facing his flailing governorship. Here are three questions Illinois families are still waiting on Rauner to answer:

  • Will Rauner return contributions from Dick Uihlein? Rauner received $2.6 million from Uihlein, who is now bankrolling a super PAC helping Roy Moore.
  • Why have costs skyrocketed for Rauner’s secret $63 billion Medicaid deal? The deal has been shrouded in secrecy and costs jumped 57 percent overnight.
  • Is Rauner concerned that four GOP congressmen aren’t confident in his leadership? Rauner is seeing dwindling support as a majority of Illinois Congressional Republicans abandon him.

“Bruce Rauner cost the state billions of dollars in a deal shrouded in secrecy, is standing by as a top donor supports someone accused of sexual misconduct, and has lost the support of a majority of Illinois congressional Republicans,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “Rauner is a failed leader, stumbling through the last year of his governorship, and refusing to provide Illinois families the answers they deserve.”
