SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Republican candidate for governor Jeanne Ives says her contentious marketing campaign ad in opposition to Gov. Bruce Rauner is an “accurate representation” of policies her rival has counseled.
The state consultant from Wheaton addressed the City Club of Chicago Monday. She agreed that the ad that includes actors taking part in a transgender lady, a sanctuary-state supporter, and a lady who’s had a publicly financed abortion is “edgy.”
But the three-term lawmaker says it displays “what the policies look like on the ground.”
She’s attacking the first-term governor for signing rules permitting transgender citizens to modify their delivery certificate, permitting Medicaid- and state-insurance-covered abortions and proscribing legislation enforcement officials’ interplay with immigrants.
The number one election is March 20.
