Surprise Surprise: Madigan Not Fond of Rauner, Trump
Calling them "two peas in a pod" and "joined at the hip," Madigan said it's clear that Rauner is supporting Trump. However, the governor, who has declined to discuss presidential politics, has said he's "disgusted" by some of Trump's remarks and hasn't officially endorsed the presidential nominee.
Madigan said Rauner's plans for Illinois would "lower wages" and "lower the standard of living."
Republicans had their day at the state fair on Wednesday, when Rauner said the GOP would outspend Democrats.
