Rauner's Wife Claims to be a Democrat in New Ad

Chicago Tribune: "Pivoting from a primary campaign geared to his party's conservative base, Republican governor candidate Bruce Rauner is now seeking to expand his appeal with a TV spot featuring playful banter with his wife, who proclaims herself to be a Democrat."

"But that on-screen declaration of political allegiance doesn't line up with Diana Rauner's history of campaign donations, which skews heavily Republican. Since 1995, 77 percent of the more than $500,000 she's given has gone to Republican candidates and causes, federal and state records show."
