|Total Cook County Votes||200,750|
The following is from Rauner’s Campaign on the endorsement:
“While government unions and national Democrats are lining up to attack Bruce in the GOP primary, Republican leaders and activists are lining up to support Bruce. Republicans know that Bruce’s ideas to increase jobs, control spending, reduce taxes, improve education and enact term limits are the keys to both winning statewide and bringing back Illinois. Republicans want to win and shake up Springfield, and they won’t let government union bosses and national Democrats hijack the Republican primary. We are grateful for their support and look forward to working with them to secure victory in March and then November.”
