Governor Bruce Rauner is pouring more money into efforts to boost his fellow Republicans this fall. Rauner tells a Southern Illinois radio station that he will give an additional $4 million to House Republicans… on top of an earlier $2 million donation.
Rauner says he will also give $1 million to GOP attorney general candidate Erika Harold. Rauner says it’s important to elect Harold because he says she will prosecute House Speaker Mike Madigan for alleged corruption.
Rauner did not elaborate on what he believes Madigan has done that would warrant criminal prosecution.
