Pritzker robocall: “Don’t believe Bruce Rauner’s lies”

Thursday, May 25, 2017 - Posted by Rich Miller

* I told you yesterday about the ILGOP’s robocalls on the Senate’s tax hike and budget votes. The robocalls were blasted statewide and into targeted House districts (click here for the list).

Well, the Pritzker campaign is launching its own robocalls into the same House districts that the Republicans targeted, which ought to make some House incumbents happy. I’m told they’re also doing a statewide blast.

Here’s the press release…

Today, on day 694 without a budget, the JB for Governor campaign released a new statewide robo call highlighting Rauner’s failure to lead our state. The robo call joins the multimedia Crisis Creatin’ Rauner campaign, holding Rauner accountable for this crisis of his own making and the families, schools, and social service agencies that continue to pay the price.

“Illinois families across the state deserve to know that this budget crisis is a crisis of Rauner’s own making,” said Pritzker campaign communications director Galia Slayen. “Illinoisans are hurting and he refuses to act on day 694 without a budget. Instead of bringing people together to negotiate, Rauner is too busy playing politics and standing in the way of compromise. Bruce Rauner has failed our state and working families have had enough.”

* The robocall

* Script…

Illinois is approaching 700 days without a budget under Bruce Rauner. 700 days.

Social service agencies are shutting down, schools are scraping by, and working families are suffering, but Bruce Rauner doesn’t care, he continues to hold our state hostage.

Just like he has since the day he took office, Bruce Rauner would rather play politics instead of doing the job he was elected to do.

Don’t believe Bruce Rauner’s lies, it’s time to hold him accountable. Illinois deserves a budget and we deserve it now.

The Republicans have had this particular playing field all to themselves this year. The playing field has now expanded.

    Too bad political calls don’t fall under the Do Not Call List. If you robo call me and interrupt dinner I will not only not vote for you, but I will kindly tell everyone you intruded into my day/evening.

    @Bulbous
    How hard is it to hang up your phone?

    To the post. Great job Jb!

    Thanks JB! Hammer Rauner and his non stop lies. Enough is Enough.

    The dinners at Bulbous1’s house must be WAY more interesting than mine.

    BULBOUST

    If you follow thru on your intentions you will end up not voting for anyone.


  6. - The Captain - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:08 pm:

    Robocalls are so cheap I already pity anyone whose phone number is in the voterfile. A general robo cease fire should be agreed upon for the general mental health of the state.


  7. - jimk849 - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:15 pm:

    I will call your bet and raise you a couple million.

    ===The Republicans have had this particular playing field all to themselves this year. The playing field has now expanded===

    FINALLY!

    More like this, please.

    Good on Pritzker, good on having Dems back… against Rauner.

    Finally.

    Take the fight to Rauner. Enough is enough!


  9. - Juice - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:20 pm:

    I never thought I would say this, but with robocalls now being made by both sides, I feel bad for people who live in the burbs.


  10. - Northside City Dweller - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:24 pm:

    Is that the first time that narrator has ever read? That makes me cringe with the awkward cadence she uses


  11. - Norseman - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:30 pm:

    Return of the Jedi, I mean JB.

    700 days! 700 Days! 700 days without a budget! Rauner has to be held accountable for this catastrophe.


  12. - A Jack - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:36 pm:

    It is good to see one Democrat candidate defending the party against the Raunerites.

    I wish the other candidates would join in against Rauner, instead of attacking each other. This could be a primary election about policy choices rather than personal attacks.


  13. - Fax Machine - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:37 pm:

    Illinois’s about to join the 700 club


  14. - Chicago Cynic - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:46 pm:

    Don’t poke the bear.


  15. - DuPage Saint - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:48 pm:

    Would be more effective I think if he rattled off a few. Say something like he says X a lie then Y a lie then Z d
    Then finish with Rauner lies don’t believe him. Just a bought. Not like Rauner doesn’t give you much o choose from


  16. - filmmaker prof - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:53 pm:

    This is exactly why Pritzker is going to get the Dem nomination: he is the only candidate with the resources to go toe-to-toe with Rauner.


  17. - Arsenal - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 1:56 pm:

    ==which ought to make some House incumbents happy==

    Which is probably the point at this stage of the primary calendar, right?

    But I mean, that’s powerful symbolism, going to get all these guys’ backs. A lot of them will remember.


  18. - flynn - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 2:40 pm:

    break the rauner lie machine , thanks j.b


  19. - wordslinger - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 3:09 pm:

    Not a believer in robocalls, but it’s about time someone started taking the fight to Rauner.

    The Illinois Democratic Party certainly has not.

    Maybe that sleepy leadership explains why the Illinois Dem vote routinely drops by more than 40% in off-prez years.

    ==- Real - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 12:55 pm:==

    People act look you forced them to pick up the phone. But you can usually press a button and silence the ringer!


  21. - Responsa - Thursday, May 25, 17 @ 5:08 pm:

    People should not be required to take evasive action to avoid robocalls in their own homes.
