Tribune Reports on Campaign Spending in Govenor's Race

Oct
21

Somehow I think I would have written this paragraph from yesterday's Chicago Tribune a bit differently:

Together, the two campaigns have raised nearly $80 million - $55.8 million by Rauner and $23.3 million by Quinn - since Rauner entered the race in March 2013. Rauner has personally given his campaign $20.1 million, including another $1.5 million reported to the State Board of Elections earlier Monday.

Maybe something more along the lines of:

Candidate Bruce Rauner is spending more than twice what his opponent Pat Quinn is spending -- much of it self-financed.

Brauner: Let Them Eat Cake

Sep
11

Chicago Sun-Times:

"In a newly unearthed radio interview, Republican private equity investor Bruce Rauner admitted earlier this year that he once favored the outright elimination of Illinois’ minimum wage."

Was that before or after this Illinois version of Marie Anoinette forked over $100k to join a wine club?

Ted Cruz: Who Me?

Jan
26

Words that will live in infamy:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) argued forcefully Sunday that the government shutdown late last year was not the Republican Party's fault, but was in fact the Democrats' doing -- a contention that even members of Cruz's own party disagree with.

"I think it was a mistake that President Obama and the Democrats shut the government down this fall," Cruz said on CBS's "Face the Nation," according to a transcript. "The reason they did so is that President Obama dug in and said he wouldn't compromise and he wouldn't negotiate."

Cruz said it was actually President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) who threatened and caused the shutdown.

"I didn't threaten to shut down the government the last time," Cruz said. "I don't think we should ever shut down the government."
