Today, 726 days into Bruce Rauner’s manufactured crisis, the Pritzker campaign released new robo calls targeting state Senate districts across the state. The calls aim to expose what Bruce Rauner’s budget compromise actually is: a sham. It’s a plan written solely by Republicans behind closed doors and that’s not compromise. While lawmakers are in Springfield today, Bruce Rauner will be in Iowa, doing nothing to help end this crisis he created.
The robo calls are part of the multimedia Crisis Creatin’ Rauner campaign, holding Bruce Rauner accountable for this crisis of his own making and the families, schools, and social service agencies that continue to pay the price.
“Bruce Rauner kicked off special session with a sham unity address that called on legislators to support a partisan budget written behind closed doors,” said Pritzker campaign communications director Galia Slayen. “While Bruce Rauner travels to other states and pretends to want compromise, Illinois families, schools, and social service agencies are suffering under his failed leadership. 726 days and counting without a state budget, and Bruce Rauner and Republicans are leading Illinois off of a fiscal cliff – it’s time they’re held accountable for their political games and disingenuous efforts to end the budget crisis. Bruce Rauner needs to focus on doing his job for Illinois families.”
No snark intended, looking for a serious answer: what’s preventing Pritzker from going dollar for dollar with Griffin, Rauner et al as the IL Dem bankroll for the foreseeable future if he wants? Are the any practical differences if someone else is the Dem Gov nominee?
Robocall is way too long. Seconds from connect to robocall hang-up or delete is about 15—and that’s if the recipient is enough on board to even get that far.
I know some people think “crisiscreatin’Rauner is terrribly clever. It’s not. Sure it’s fun to mock Rauner but it is also mocking the way many areas of this state naturally speak. Somebody might should clue in JB about central and downstate Illinois.
I know you’re not a JB fan, but boy are you reaching with that. So makin’ fun of Rauner for the phony G dropping is now off limits??? Cmon. Everyone makes fun of him because is so absurdly contrived and phony that Governor Ivy League suddenly forgot his Gs that nobody on either side of the aisle seriously believes that.
Oh, and 15 seconds is not remotely too long. Done much robocalling?

So to conclude, when Republicans and Rauner do legislative district robocalls attacking issues of the day, it is a horrible, ill-advised, politically naive action which does nothing to move the parties closer to a budget after two years.
Yet when a Democrat does the same type of robocalls, it is cheered!
