* Yesterday, I received an e-mail from a friend about Bruce Rauner’s new campaign video…
* The video is here. Screen cap…
I replied that it could be the bluffs near the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. They look almost mountainous and it’s one of the prettiest areas in the state.
So, I sent the Rauner campaign an e-mail. I never heard back.
* I think my friend also contacted Sneed…
I asked the campaign again this morning whether this is just stock footage of any old corn field or if it was actually from Illinois. No reply.
Obviously, this is not the biggest issue in the campaign. But if Rauner is attempting to appeal to Downstaters with his freshly minted Carhartt-ish jacket and innumerable images of farms in his roll-out spot, then it would be nice to know if all his images were actually from this state.
