From his Supreme Court nominee to his attacks on minority communities, Bruce Rauner has supported Donald Trump’s radical agenda while it hurts the people of Illinois. Whether he’s Trump’s silent partner or his biggest cheerleader, Rauner stands by the bigoted president’s side, praising his devastation in Washington and following his lead here in Illinois.
Bruce Rauner has backed Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh since day one. Despite the devastation he could have on women’s rights, workers’ rights, and healthcare, Rauner called Kavanaugh “impressive.” With the future of Roe v. Wade in jeopardy, it should be no surprise that the man who bragged about being the “strongest supporter” of anti-choice candidates would have no qualms supporting Kavanaugh. Now, Kavanaugh faces multiple sexual assault allegations while Rauner refuses to rescind his endorsement.
“Brett Kavanaugh could be the deciding vote in overturning Roe v. Wade, but supposedly ‘pro-choice’ Bruce Rauner is firmly by his side,” said Pritzker campaign spokesman Jason Rubin. “Rauner continuing to support Kavanaugh tells Illinoisans all they need to know about how this governor has failed women when it matters most.”
