Newly nominated Republican candidate for Governor, Bruce Rauner, wasted no time attacking current Governor Pat Quinn in his victory speech on Tuesday evening.
Rauner accuses Quinn of “the politics of division” and warns voters that they must choose between the “old status quo” and “a new direction” on Election Day this November 4th.
Governor Quinn did not wait for the Republican candidate to be named before he released television ads that criticized Republican over not wanting to raise the minimum wage in Illinois. According to Quinn, the working-class in Illinois are “the real everyday heroes of our state” and blasted Rauner’s wealth as leaving him out-of-touch with the people.
Quinn has voiced his support of raising the state minimum wage from $8.25 to $10 while Rauner is on record as supporting moving back the minimum wage to the federal rate of $7.25.
Below is Gov. Pat Quinn's newest political ad.
