Governor Bruce Rauner isn't sulking in Springfield over yesterday's failed bid to pass a stopgap budget.


He was on a whirlwind five city tour including a stop in Mahomet, trying to build support for a six month spending plan. He says his rivals aren't in touch with the needs of the state's southern sector.



He was joined by outspoken Vienna High School Superintendent/Principal Josh Stafford.



Rauner started the day at Alton and stopped in Quincy and Pekin.
