* From yesterday’s Bruce Rauner fundraising appeal…
Right now we’re being outspent by about 2 to 1 by the special interest allies who support Quinn-Madigan.
Will you help us get this ad out far and wide by making an urgent contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or even $2,500?
Quinn-Madigan and their allies are literally spending about a million dollars a week in lies to protect their system.
But you can stop them today, right now, with a donation.
Join us, today.
* His campaign manager sent one out today…
Pat Quinn and his special interest allies are spending about $1 million PER WEEK with lies about Bruce.
If it sounds like a lot, that’s because it is. They’re outspending us about 2 to 1.
Quinn will spend more money this year than anyone has ever spent to win the Illinois governor’s race. Ever. He’ll spend millions more than even Blago.
Why so much? With Pat Quinn under federal investigation, more news about patronage hires, an economy in the tank, cuts to education funding, and a whole host of other problems it will take record-breaking special interest cash to give Quinn a chance.
You know when the courts are intervening to kick term limits off the ballot despite overwhelming support from rank-and-file democrats, independents, and republicans that the deck is stacked against us.
But no one ever thought shaking up the system in a state like Illinois would be easy. The machine will pull out every stop to win. Of course.
So I spent all day yesterday re-crunching the numbers. We need $437,332 to give our advertising a needed boost to close the gap with Quinn and his special interest machine.
Are they sure that’s not $437,332.47?
Price specifics like that are designed to make the ask sound more believable. But unless all of Rauner’s GTCR stock just tanked, I find it hard to believe that he’s starving for cash.
