Quinn Takes Issue With Latest Rauner Ad

Gov. Pat Quinn has blasted a new commercial by his Republican opponent in which headlines from news stories appear doctored.

Speaking to reporters at a Thursday campaign event in Chicago, the Democrat called the alterations “clearly wrong.”

Bruce Rauner’s 30-second commercial overlays what appear to be newspaper headlines over images of Quinn. The headlines criticize Quinn’s record on jobs, schools and a troubled anti-violence program. But a review of the ad reveals several cases where the purported headlines don’t match the headlines media outlets actually used.
