Radogno Echoes Rauner, Hammers Emanuel

(Chicago, IL) — In a lunchtime speech in Chicago, Illinois Senate Republican leader Christine Radogno continue the scalding of Mayor Rahm Emanuel that Governor Rauner began last week. Radogno told the City Club of Chicago that Emanuel has failed the city and lost the confidence of the voters. She said Emanuel should get behind the anti-union, pro-business changes Rauner has been pushing, and if he doesn’t, it will be impossible to save Illinois or Chicago. She called the budget impasse a battle for the soul of the state.
