YouTube ad blasts Rauner for being a 'fake Republican'
A new YouTube video advertisement paid for by the Ives for Illinois-Governor organization slams Gov. Bruce Rauner for attacking Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) over being a true conservative.
“It turns out that Bruce Rauner is the Democratic Governors Association favorite fake republican,” the video blares. “They don’t like that Ives voted against the sanctuary state law Rauner signed; they don’t like that she voted against the taxpayer-funded abortion law that Rauner signed; they don’t like that she voted against the Chicago Public School bailout Rauner signed; they don’t like that she’s been endorsed by the National Review.”
In the end, the video pushes voters to pull back the layers to see what the narrator seems to suggest should be obvious to them.
“Fake Republican Rauner and Democrats don’t like Jeanne Ives, which is why you should,” the ad wraps.
After months of nonstop campaigning, Rauner and Ives are set to face off in the GOP primary Tuesday for the right to face the democratic winner from among favorites J.B. Pritzker, Chris Kennedy and Daniel Biss in November’s general election.
The 52-year-old Ives, a graduate of West Point, has based her campaign on a platform of greater fiscal responsibility and more government accountability.
