Rauner gets State Journal-Register endorsement

Lincoln home, Springfield
Writing for Chicago Magazine on Monday, Carol Felsenthal noted that all of Illinois' major newspapers had endorsed Republican businessman Bruce Rauner for governor over the incumbent, Chicago Democrat Pat Quinn.

All but one, she added, and that paper was the State Journal-Register, Illinois' oldest newspaper and the only daily in the state capital.

Well about an hour ago the Journal-Register endorsed Rauner.

From that endorsement:
Rauner, a venture capitalist who makes no apologies for his success, understands the challenges businesses face. He told The State Journal-Register editorial board he believes the state must overhaul its tax code, consider additional workers' compensation reforms, end corporate welfare, implement some business-friendly regulatory changes and make state government more efficient if it wants to create jobs and propel economic growth.
Quinn hasn't earned a single newspaper endorsement. Why? He doesn't deserve any.
