Rauner Calls State Budget “Stunningly Bad,” Provides No Solution

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate businessman Bruce Rauner participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

Governor-elect Bruce Rauner says Illinois' financial condition is "stunningly bad'' and it will require "strong action'' to fix it.
