WTVO/WQRF -- Republican nominee for Governor Bruce Rauner's campaign is hitting the airwaves first with an attack ad against his opponent, Governor Pat Quinn.

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.
