McCann highlights Rauner’s lies and failed agenda.

SPRINGFIELD, IL – This morning, Governor Rauner twice called Conservative Party gubernatorial candidate Sam McCann a “pawn” to Speaker Michael Madigan and Democratic nominee J.B. Pritzker. Sam issued the following statement:

In an effort to divert attention from another failed overseas economic development tour, Governor Rauner resorted to petty attacks and name calling against me and my campaign.

Without a successful record of his own, Rauner has spent the last three-and-a-half years spreading lies and myths, including lying to Cardinal Cupich over the signing of House Bill 40, which provided publicly funded on-demand abortions.

I am nobody’s pawn, but rather a proud servant to Illinois’ hardworking middle class men and women. Governor Rauner has spent his term in office doing the bidding of wealthy elitists who bought a party and tried to buy a state. The bad news for Rauner is that the citizens of Illinois are smart enough to see through his liberal record of supporting publicly funded on-demand abortions, allowing transgender people to change their birth certificates and making Illinois a sanctuary state.

Voters can’t tell the difference between the policies of Rauner and Madigan because there is no difference. Voters are demanding a candidate who takes a different path from this liberal agenda that is why I am running.
