Rauner Will Face Quinn for Illinois Governor

Chicago Tribune: "The fall campaign for Illinois governor between Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican challenger Bruce Rauner will feature dueling brands of populism, campaign bankrolls in the tens of millions of dollars and plenty of scorched-earth attacks from groups with a vested interest in the high-stakes race."

"Indeed, even before Rauner had eked out a tougher-than-expected primary victory Tuesday, Quinn was up on TV with an ad attacking the wealthy Winnetka venture capitalist for his shifting positions on raising Illinois' minimum wage."

The Chicago Sun Times notes Rauner beat Kirk Dillard (R) "by a mere 3 percentage points, after dominating the polls for months, thanks to a barrage of TV ads bankrolled by his personal fortune and prodigious fund-raising ability."
