Rauner only thing keeping Chicago from running state

To The Herald-Whig:

I read the article about the Democrat running for governor of Illinois and his promises to the veterans home. We all have heard the Democrats and their promises before.

I hope everyone knows that the only thing keeping Chicago from running the state of Illinois is our Republican governor. We have a majority of Democrats in the Illinois Congress and an attorney general who's a Democrat.

If we get a Democrat governor, Chicago will control all of Illinois. We have to do a lot for Chicago now, but if the city also had the governor's job, downstate Illinois might as well close shop. I hope all our voters are aware of these problems.
