Representative Jeanne Ives, the conservative reform Republican for Governor, has released a new campaign ad that will run statewide. The :30 second television spot, Lead the Charge, focuses on two of Governor Rauner’s many betrayals:
(1) Signing the sanctuary state legislation that 67 of 73 Republican legislators voted against, including Ives.
(2) Abdicating the leadership responsibility attendant to his office – “I’m not in charge” – and sitting by while 15 House Republicans not named Jeanne Ives bolted and supported the 32% permanent income tax increase, the largest structural tax increase in Illinois history.
Bruce Rauner surrendered. Jeanne Ives will fight back. Bruce Rauner isn’t in charge. Jeanne Ives will lead the charge.
Boy I wish there was a Republican gubernatorial debate
Maybe in the next ad she can call him out on it.
West Point grad trained to take charge vs no no not me I am not in charge not my fault its its its yeah Madigans fault
Wow, even when they try to soften her, she comes across as so unlikeable.

She “spent the last 5 years battling Democrats.” Maybe Illinois needs a governor that isn’t going into battle with the other side. What we need is someone who is willing to sit down and work with the other side.
