Quad City Times endorses Rauner

Mississippi River in NW Illinois
The endorsement battle in the Illinois governor's race has become a rout. Pat Quinn so far has not gained a single major newspaper endorsement.


This morning's readers of the Quad City Times is the latest to weigh in on the side of Republican businessman Bruce Rauner.

From that QC Times endorsement:
Bruce Rauner's candidacy makes some Illinoisans nervous. The prospect of him in the governor’s mansion leaves some long-time Springfield power brokers absolutely apoplectic.

To which we reply: Good.

Illinois requires the kind of shake up Rauner promises. Reform the state's awful, unfair education funding formulas. Slash the number of redundant local governments and departments. Revive redistricting reform trashed by House Speaker Michael Madigan. Cut spending. Raise some taxes.
