The Daily Herald, Illinois' third-most read newspaper, gave its nod to the Republican newcomer last Sunday.
The Morris Daily Herald also endorsed Rauner Friday. Yeah, it's a smaller paper, but its write-up for the successful businessman is a must-read for undecided voters.
Gov. Pat Quinn has had more than five years to guide Illinois toward a brighter fiscal future.Related posts:
Instead, his incompetent leadership and regressive policies have driven the state to the brink of financial collapse.
To that point:
Illinois is bleeding jobs. State data released last month show that there are 102,000 fewer Illinoisans in the workforce now than when Quinn, a Democrat, took office in 2009. That's good for worst in the country. Illinois also is the only state in the Midwest in which food stamp enrollment has outpaced job creation – and by a 2-to-1 margin – since the Great Recession, again under Quinn’s watch.
Illinois has the worst credit rating of any state in the nation, meaning it pays more in interest when borrowing money.
