Rauner: Daley candidacy more of the same for Ill.

CHICAGO – Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner said Democrat Bill Daley’s decision to run for governor in 2014 “doesn’t hold much promise for fixing our serious problems.”

Daley is a former White House chief of staff and son and brother of two of Chicago’s most powerful mayors. He announced Tuesday he will challenge Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, saying Illinois needs leadership that can get things done. Rauner announced his candidacy last week. He launched the first television ads of the 2014 campaign season Tuesday.

In a statement, the GOP venture capitalist calls Daley “one more candidate from the entrenched Illinois political power structure.”

He said the state needs “a clean break from the political machines that have been in charge for too long.”
