BREAKING: Bruce Rauner Takes First Personal Donation from Koch Brothers

Chicago, IL – Tonight, Bruce Rauner reported his first personal contribution from Charles Koch, a right-wing mega donor who joined his brother in pledging to spend $889 million throughout the 2016 election cycle alone.


Rauner attended the Koch Brothers’ annual summit in California this past January where Charles and David Koch recommitted to spending “between $300 million and $400 million to influence politics and public policy over the next two years.”
“Rauner has been hiding his Koch Brothers’ agenda under his Carhartt jacket for years, but now his radical, right-wing agenda is on full display,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “With support dwindling, Rauner is counting on an assist from the Kochs as he tries to force their special interest agenda on Illinois.”
