Governor Bruce Rauner (R-IL) rolled out a pair of ads this week to promote his agenda and also lay the framework for his 2018 re-election. While the ads make a point saying for too long Illinois politicians have too long patched the state's problems with "duct tape" solutions, it is tough to see whether Illinois voters won't lump Rauner in with that same crowd as the incumbent. Rauner is facing a tough re-election in this heavily blue state that has faced a budget impasse and declining economic prospects. Look to see this ad war to only escalate ad Democrats are sure to counter this ad buy with one of their own.
