DGA Launches 2 New TV Ads Holding Rauner and Ives Accountable for Failed Records

Tomorrow, the Democratic Governors Association will launch two new television ads holding Governor Bruce Rauner and state Representative Jeanne Ives accountable for their failed policy agendas.

The ad titled ‘Worst’ focuses on how Bruce Rauner’s failed leadership has made Illinois worse economically and fiscally. Rauner’s two-year budget crisis led to more debt, a lower credit rating, and the worst unemployment rate in the Midwest.

The ad titled ‘Most’ lays out how Jeanne Ives’s policies are too conservative for Illinois. Ives supports banning abortion, overturning needed protections for immigrants, and would bring the failed policies of President Donald Trump to Illinois.

“Jeanne Ives and Bruce Rauner’s failed policies are a disaster for middle-class Illinois families,” said DGA Spokesman Sam Salustro. “Jeanne Ives’ positions are just too conservative for Illinois. And Rauner’s refusal to show leadership has made Illinois worse off fiscally and economically. It’s time for both leaders to start working for Illinois families, and not themselves.”
