Rauner's TV ad highlights what he says are Governor Quinn's "most egregious broken promises as governor."
“Again and again, Pat Quinn broke his word and failed the people of Illinois,” Rauner said in a news release accompanying the ad. “After promising to make job creation a top priority, Illinois finds itself tied for the worst unemployment rate in the Midwest. After promising not to cut education spending, he gutted it by more than $500 million. After promising to protect working families from higher taxes, he passed a massive 67 percent tax hike on every Illinoisan - and now he’s trying to make that tax hike permanent.”
It's the first salvo in what is expected to be an expensive and hard-hitting campaign for both candidates.
