Outgoing Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner on Thursday picked former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas and businessman Willie Wilson when asked which Chicago mayoral candidates he preferred. […]
“I don’t think I should opine too extensively on the mayor’s race at this point.

“Although Wilson would be an interesting option too,” Rauner said. “A little more volatile.” […]
“I’m very concerned for taxpayers and job creators what would happen with a Preckwinkle or Mendoza administration,” he said. “Union officials. Spending proclivities. Ties to the machine.”
Man, I hope they post the raw audio/video of that chat.
