With today’s announcement, Rauner has now been endorsed over Pat
Quinn by three of Illinois’ leading job creation groups: the
Illinois Manufacturers' Association, the National Federation of
Independent Business and the Illinois Chamber of Commerce.
creators across the state share our vision of job creation and
economic growth,” Rauner said. “They want the Quinn-Madigan tax
hikes rolled back. They want an end to Springfield’s never-ending
red tape. They want lawsuit reform and workers comp reform. And they
want an end to Pat Quinn’s corruption tax.”
"When it comes to jobs
and those who create them, Pat Quinn still doesn't understand what
it takes to grow our economy,” said Todd Maisch, president and CEO
of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. “Luckily, this election year
presents us with a clear alternative – a candidate with a vision to
restore Illinois’ mantle as the economic engine of the Midwest.
Bruce Rauner will be a champion for Illinois job creation and we are
proud to endorse him."
