Another Rauner endorsement: Morris Daily Herald

I&M Canal at Morris
On Friday the Bruce Rauner campaign picked up two key endorsements for his campaign to replace the inept Chicago Democrat as Illinois' governor, those of Crain's Chicago Business and the Chicago Tribune.

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.

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.
