Tempers Flare At GOP Gubernatorial Forum



The Republican gubernatorial race has taken on a combative tone as candidates at a forum took jabs over allegations of campaign donations, clout and flip-flopping stances.

Much of it focused on businessman Bruce Rauner who's outraised the other three candidates. They are state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady.

Brady brought up Rauner's changed stance on minimum wage. Rauner first said he'd advocate for lowering it and then said that he'd support raising it under the right circumstances.

Dillard remarked he was glad Rauner could attend.
It's the first debate in 2014 where all four participated. It was hosted by the (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald and WLS-TV.

Rauner says the debate was a "beat up Bruce" hour. He says it shows he's ahead.
