IL governor makes re-election bid official with video

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner on Monday will make official what had always been expected, formally announcing his plans to seek a second term as the state's chief executive despite turmoil within his own political party.

The first term Republican issued a video this morning that features him riding his motorcycle through IL.

The current governor outlined his vision with a vow to "keep fighting" for the future of IL.

Congressman Rodney Davis (R-IL 13) says he still supports the governor, but it doesn't mean he wasn't disappointed with Rauner signing the controversial bill, even after promising his own party members he'd veto it. It focuses on the agenda he has pushed since taking office, including property tax relief. J.B. Pritzker, one of the world's richest people, is among several Democrats trying to defeat multimillionaire Rauner. The 2018 IL governor's race is on pace to be the most expensive in USA history, propelled by a wealthy Republican incumbent and a billionaire Democrat. He has already donated 50-million dollars to his campaign.
