After sitting in the same room with Diana Rauner for a fund-raiser this morning, former U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood unloaded on her newly-elected husband, Bruce Rauner, a fellow Republican.
“I don’t believe in campaigns that trash other candidates,” LaHood told the Sun-Times. “I think you ought to talk about what you’re going to do. I’m registered to vote in Peoria and I saw the literature that the Rauner campaign sent out about Rutherford and Brady and Dillard and made them look like, you know, people that they aren’t. Disparaging their public service. For what? For your own public gain. I don’t believe in that.”
