Illinois Likes Bruce Rauner, New Poll Shows

Meanwhile, a Super PAC gears up to go after ... Bruce Rauner.

BAD PRESS, NO PROBLEM Bruce Rauner has had a rough couple of weeks, but you'd never know it from the results of a new We Ask America poll. Capitol Fax publisher Rich Miller wonders whether Rauner can ride this wave all the way to the March 18 primary. More here.

VENDETTA? Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock isn't running for governor, but his presence is being felt. His former chief of staff is heading up a Super PAC aimed at defeating Bruce Rauner. Why? I explain in 90 seconds in a new feature: The Reboot Illinois 90-Second Drill.

Illinois is kaput regardless of who is elected. Think about it; corrupt and broke state, corrupt and broke city, corrupt and broke county, high taxes and going higher in state, city and county, one part rule, declining population and tax base, lousy weather.
