One Republican candidate for governor is blasting another… on the issue of experience.
Dan Rutherford says the job of governor is not one for a beginner in Illinois politics. He’s going after Bruce Rauner, the wealthy businessman who has attacked his three rivals for long careers in state government.
Rutherford notes that he also has many years of private business management experience… but says it’s important to have a governor who knows how things work in Springfield. Rutherford says if you were having brain surgery, you wouldn’t want someone with no experience performing the procedure.
Rutherford and Rauner are battling state senators Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady for the nomination in the March GOP primary. [Rutherford appeared Friday on the 970 WMAY News Feed.]
