    having seen advertising banners on this site for him yesterday, i'm just curious what others here know about this guy running as the formidable republican candidate for IL governor. Any bumping elbow buddy of Rahm Emanual doesnt necessarily sound like someone representing my best interests. :cool:

    We know he is close personal friends with Rham.

    We know he is not the common blue collar guy he is pushing him self off as.

    We know he owns several multi million dollar businesses, which I have no problem with but don't portray yourself as the average Joe Blue collar worker.

    We know he has donated millions of dollars to the democratic party over the last 20 years or so. I have no problem with that as well, but it is kind of interesting now that he'd be running republican, don't ya think.

    He told someone once, "I believe in the 2nd Amendment, but people in my district just aren't interested in carry concealed." Why is it everyone who tramples the 2nd Amendment insists on first saying how much they believe in it first.

    I think he is a plant to split the vote away from Rutherford and ensure Quinn gets the win. I don't know everything about him, but I do know Rauner will NOT be getting my vote.

    Any friend of Rham is no friend of mine.
