I am glad about how he handled the hostile Democrat big to take over the MESD, but it was a coin flip for me as to whether he would do the right thing or not. I also think the Democrats will try to kick that door in again, because thats what they do.
I dont Rauner he has a chance in hell of winning, even though I cant imagine why the Democrats would even want to replace him.
My M.O. is to trash Democrats, because I find them to be unsavory, manipulative and dishonest. On the other hand, the only good thing I see with Rauner or Republicans like Rauner is that technically they are not Democrats. When I was younger, that was good enough for me, now im finding it more difficult to support people like that.
So if by some miracle Rauner does win, my response will be something like this. "Rauner won, thats nice I hope the Packers can come back in the second half."
