Bruce Rauner Retools Team After Crisis Expert Fails to Avoid “Summer of Setbacks”

Chicago, IL — Even though Bruce Rauner had a crisis expert consulting for months, Rauner stumbled through a “summer of setbacks” and is now doubling down on crisis management by reorganizing his top staff.
 
Rauner spent $12,500 a month of taxpayer dollars on this pricey crisis expert, but clearly didn’t get his money’s worth. The Sun-Times called Rauner's summer “terrible” and “very bad” while WBEZ called it “rough” and a “summer of setbacks,” and those are just the stories published this week. Instead of moving beyond his catastrophic and crisis-filled summer, Rauner is doubling down, reorganizing his staff yet again to focus on “charting choppy waters.” 
 
“Bruce Rauner is doubling down on creating crisis and attempting to message them in his favor,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “There’s no number of staff shakeups that can turn around the damage done by this failed governor.”
