CHICAGO | AP FACT CHECK: Governor candidate wants to test mileage tax
CHICAGO — Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner‘s campaign has hit the Illinois airwaves with a new claim that Democratic challenger J.B. Pritzker wants to tax drivers for the mileage they log by using a tracking device.
It’s the latest in a string of Rauner ads that accuse Pritzker of harboring plans to raise taxes. The candidates are wealthy businessmen who are locked in an expensive spending campaign;
Rauner has put $50 million of his own cash into the race this cycle while Pritzker has poured in $100 million of his money.
