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.

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