Bruce Rauner and J.B. Pritzker still have primaries to worry about in the race for Governor, but the financial titans continue to duke it out on the airwaves.
Rauner has launched a new TV attack ad featuring wiretapped audio of Pritzker talking to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich about possible jobs, including Attorney General if he chose Lisa Madigan to become former President Barack Obama's replacement in the U.S. Senate.
Pritzker's counterpunch ad criticizes Rauner in connection with deaths and illnesses at the Quincy Veterans Home. The ad samples newscasters from around the state questioning the Rauner administration’s handling of incidents of Legionnaire’s disease at the Quincy Veterans Home, where 13 people have died since a 2015 outbreak.
