Bruce Rauner is throwing jabs at House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton. His latest ad claims the two top Democrats have helped produce 100-years of failure in Illinois.

The ad goes on to say that the Democrats have been involved in hiring scandals, federal investigations, and secret insider deals. They're specifically referring to Governor Quinn's patronage scandal at IDOT, and the fact that the federal government is investigating his troubled anti-violence program. Governor Quinn's team is firing back though. They say Rauner has zero credibility when it comes to ethics. They point out that Rauner pays to get what he wants and that his businesses have been connected to Medicaid fraud and abusing seniors in nursing homes.
