Rauner and his eventual successor share a quite moment before the battle beings in earnest. Not only is Illinois Treasurer Mike Frerich’s taller, younger and better looking than Bruce, he’s smarter too! After Bruce slashes the state budget, raises our taxes and a few of his close allies are arrested for corruption, Big Mike Frerich’s will be a shoe-in.
All your “backwards games” against Mike Frerichs will turn out like they have so far — poorly. Fact is, Senator Frerichs is among the smartest public servants I have ever met. A little grey hair around Treasurer Frerichs’ temples will quell questions raised by the likes of Willey.
The one thing nobody in Illinois can do is save Bruce Rauner from his ambitious self! Watch this rich boy fall, burn and end up in jail. Meanwhile, Big Mike Frerichs is going to SHAKE IT OFF and play it straight!
It doesn’t matter if Mike Frerichs’ runs in 2018, 2020 or 2024.
While the likes of “old Willey” ends their days in a government subsidized nursing home the likes of Big Mike Frerichs will be elected Governor of Illinois before he turns 55!
