From a Bruce Rauner press release via Capitol Fax:
“Gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner today released automated calls to voters in six key state legislative districts where the General Assembly’s vote on making Pat Quinn’s state income tax increase permanent could be decided.”
One of these districts is the 71st. Rich Miller thinks that these calls are wasted in the 71st where Smiddy takes his marching orders from Big Labor who are all for mo’ money. How likely is it that Smiddy will heed the taxpayers in his district over his Big Money patrons in labor?
Dunno, but on the other hand Rauner is basically giving The Woz free advertising since it is entirely possible some people in the 71st are unaware their taxes were hiked 67%—although not by Smiddy. So in the 71st this robocalling might be a wash, or it might cause the good people of the district to seek alternatives to Smiddy.
