Political Add Targets Illinois Governor Rauner

June 25, 2018 - 10:16 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Some of Illinois' neighbors star in the latest attack ad against incumbent Gov. Bruce Rauner. It's actually a spin on an ad Rauner himself ran earlier this year, starring neighboring Governors including Missouri's Eric Greitens sarcastically thanking Democrat House Speaker Michael Madigan for sending jobs to their states.

This ad is by Rauner's opponent J.B. Pritzker and features blue-collar workers with a similar message:

“When Bruce Rauner calls Illinois a horrible place to do business, guess where the jobs go? And what governor talks trash about his own state?”

Those workers are from Missouri, Wisconsin and Indiana.
