I love Rauner’s political ads because they energize me to vote for his opponent JB Pritzker a lot more than Pritzker’s own ads do. Rauner’s ads give actual lists of what Pritzker supports, and these are all good things that I support, too. I wish Pritzker didn’t need his opponent’s help to articulate his own positions. It’s like he’s afraid publicly to stand up for his beliefs and hides them behind a lot of meaningless identitarian slogans.
Across the river, Claire McCaskill is pretty much losing her vulnerable Senate seat to the Republican opponent. She needs to pull it together because it’s not looking good right now.
