Republican candidate for Governor Jeanne Ives called incumbent Governor Bruce Rauner a liar who has failed to follow the Republican platform when addressing the Marion County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner Saturday night. She also called Rauner unelectable if he's the party's candidate in the November election.

Ives said she went to Springfield as a State Representative three terms ago to be a voice for the taxpayer. She's especially upset with the Governor signing an abortion bill.

"Mike Madigan and the Democrats didn't make taxpayer-funded abortion happen, Bruce Rauner signed that. He's the only Governor to ever sign the legislation is a Republican Governor in a state that is bankrupt. In Flossmoor, they just opened a Planned Parenthood. It is one of five that will open in the state of Illinois. Why? Because we have now become a profit center for Planned Parenthood since we will now fund all Medicaid abortions and state employees. That is what is happening with your tax dollars."

Ives says the state has severe financial and pension problems that need to be addressed. If elected, she promised she would be in charge regardless of the makeup of the state legislature.
