Bruce Rauner hit on outsourcing in new DGA video

The Democratic Governors Association is releasing a new video hitting Bruce Rauner over the outsourcing issue, something Democrats have pounded the Republican businessman on in recent days. Rauner responded by saying companies under him had international operations that included overseas hires: "no, not every job can be in America," he said.

Earlier this week, the Rauner campaign shot back at the outsourcing issue with this: “The fact is Pat Quinn is invested in the Caymans and has engaged in business outsourcing as governor," said Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf "Pat Quinn has clearly reached all out desperation mode with his new false and misleading attack. Only a failed governor who wants to cover up his own record of tax hikes and job losses would make outrageous claims like these.”
