Gov-elect Rauner meets with blacks, Hispanics, says he will work for all of Illinois

Republican Bruce Rauner wants to be governor for all of Illinois.

From the Chicago Tribune:
Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner, meeting with voters less than a week after election, told African-Americans and Hispanics in the Chicago area Sunday that he would be a frequent visitor to their communities and would work for all Illinoisans.

Joined by his wife, Diana, Rauner made appearances at a Maywood church and at a bakery in the Pilsen neighborhood.

"The good Lord didn't make us Republicans or Democrats," Rauner told parishioners at the Rock of Ages Baptist Church in Maywood, where he had visited while campaigning against Gov. Pat Quinn. "The good Lord made us in his image to do the good Lord's work, to make the world a better place for all families."

Rauner said it was his third appearance at the church and that he "will be back many times."
