Tick Tock: 693 Days Without A Budget

New Digital Ads Will Highlight Rauner's Unprecedented Crisis

Chicago, IL – Today, people across Illinois will see new interactive digital banners highlighting the 693-day budget crisis that Bruce Rauner created. The digital ads feature a rolling clock counting the days, hours, minutes and seconds Illinois has gone without a budget. Bruce Rauner’s failed leadership has put the state in the record books for the longest period of time without a budget – ever.

 “Bruce Rauner said he wanted to leverage a crisis to pass his Koch brothers agenda and so he created one,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “As the state is barreling towards its third year without a budget, Rauner has walked away from negotiations and is instead putting out demands over Facebook live. It’s way past time for Rauner to stop the political games, drop his crisis creating agenda, and start governing the state he is supposed to lead.”
