The Chicago Sun-Times reports he paid $10.1 million in federal taxes last year and another $2.6 million in state taxes.

He reported $28.1 million in income in 2011 and $27.1 million in 2010.

In a statement, Rauner says he's worked "extremely hard" and feels "incredibly blessed to have earned financial success."

Meanwhile, a spokesman says Rauner owns a stake in the Bulls as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers and Boston Red Sox.

Rauner says if he's elected he'd put his holdings in a blind trust.
