Surprise Surprise: Madigan Not Fond of Rauner, Trump

Continuing his feud with blood rival Gov. Bruce Rauner, Democratic Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan compared Rauner to Donald Trump at the Illinois State Fair Thursday, according to the State Journal-Register.

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.
