Kane Democrats, unions rally against Rauner's turnaround agenda
Sep 3, 2015 8:27 PM - Kane County Democrats denounced Gov. Bruce Rauner's turnaround agenda Thursday while calling for party unity and support for unions. The event, which was timed to celebrate Labor Day, took on new significance the morning after Democrats failed to overturn Rauner's veto on a key piece of union legislation Wednesday night. The heightened concern fueled comparisons of Rauner to the Biblical Pharoah and a call to elect "real Democrats" to the state legislature by State Sens. Linda Holmes and Linda Chapa La Via.
