RGA Statement on Illinois Gubernatorial Primary

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Republican Governors Association Chairman Chris Christie issued the following statement regarding the outcome of tonight’s Illinois gubernatorial primary election:

“It’s time to leave behind the days of high unemployment and job losses, skyrocketing taxes, unaccountable spending and failing schools that have blighted the last five years in Illinois under Pat Quinn. Illinois is ready for a real leader: someone who can’t be bought or intimidated. Illinois is ready for a governor who is willing to solve the toughest of problems, not avoid them; for a governor who works to foster economic growth, not stifle it; for a governor who can balance a budget without saddling the taxpayers time and time again; for a governor who refuses to endure the persistent failure of government that has racked Illinois for years.”

“Illinois is ready for Bruce Rauner. He is focused, willing and prepared to do what it takes to bring back Illinois. The Republican Governors Association congratulates Bruce Rauner on his victory tonight and proudly supports his campaign to defeat Governor Quinn.”

WeAskAmerica   1/30 - 1/30   1354 LV   47-39   Rauner +8

Poll done before primary has Rauner up 8.  IL is going to have a GOP gov again.

We shall see, but I'm voting for Rauner and hopes he wins.
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."

The US Constitution is a result of compromise and ideals... and I think it's pretty darn great.

Good luck! Don't forget to start grabbing factoids pro Rauner and anti Quinn (much fewer of them). A single well stated factoid in conversation can turn undecideds, especially if they are positive facts. Most people like to think they are informed, but only remember headlines - it's called source amnesia and is a wickedly effective tool if done correctly. Just look how effectively the Dems use it!
