Chicago media finally catches on

Republican governor candidate Bruce Rauner on Monday promised to pump more money into education from preschool through college should he be elected, but failed to say how he'd pay for it and keep his earlier pledges to lower the income tax rate and freeze property taxes. The so-called "blueprint" for education follows the pattern of similar proposals the first-time candidate has released in recent months about how he'd govern, containing broad themes but few specifics.

Wealth, minimum wage pop up in governor race

Paul Vallas, Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn's running mate, was asked if he believed Republican venture capitalist Bruce Rauner was “just too rich to be governor.” After telling reporters that Rauner didn't understand working class Illinoisans because of his philosophy in business, Vallas answered “yes.” Quinn's campaign has tried to paint Rauner as an out-of-touch millionaire, pointing to the $53 million he earned in 2012 and most recently pointing out his membership to a wine club with up to $140,000 in initiation fees. However, the campaign has stopped short of saying directly that it is because Rauner is too wealthy.
