Bruce Rauner, the Republican running for governor of Illinois, is proudly running as a RINO.

Essentially, he is copying the campaign approach that was used successfully by RINO Senator Mark Kirk.

I do not say this as a criticism. For a Republican to win in the very Democratic enclave of Illinois, he must move to the left. Moreover, a RINO Republican in office in Illinois will still be a step up from a corrupt Democrat. In fact, getting a lot of Democrats fired in that state might actually force some real reform in that party there.

  • What make someone electable in Texas doesn’t make them electable in Illinois or New Jersey. It makes people crazy to have people like the ladies from Maine but they a product for what it takes for a Republican to win in these areas. We show hope to have more people that represent the people who elect them as well of the national party unity stuff because honestly both parties do a lot of bone head things.
