Governor Campaigns Rip Each Other's Records

The candidates for Illinois governor are hammering each other's records on business and caring for the developmentally disabled.
 
Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor Paul Vallas blasted
Republican Bruce Rauner Monday after a published news report said a
long-term care company once tied to Rauner faced lawsuits and disciplinary
action over the mistreatment of residents, fatalities and ``deplorable'' living
conditions.
 
Vallas suggests Rauner profited from substandard care and should be questioned
about his involvement. GOP officials shot back with allegations of neglect at
state facilities under Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn's tenure.
 
Rauner spoke Tuesday at a business forum at Chicago State University hosted by
a black pastor. Rauner claims Quinn hasn't delivered for blacks in Illinois and
cites the lack of jobs and educational opportunities.
