* From Gov. Bruce Rauner’s interview on WJPF Radio this morning…
I’m the one person who can beat JB Pritzker and Madigan and I will beat JB Pritzker and Madigan.
Pritzker, I know him. He’s a tax dodger, he hides his money in the Cayman Islands, he rips toilets out of mansions he buys, so he doesn’t have to pay the full property taxes on them. He tried to buy a Senate seat from Blagojevich. We are gonna blow him up and take him down. We are gonna beat him. He’s Madigan’s handpicked candidate.
If Pritzker were to win, it would turn out the lights in Illinois. And I’m gonna pound him, we’re gonna beat him. And I’m excited to do it.
And there’s your fall campaign preview, campers. Somebody better get some smelling salts for a certain Tribune columnist.
