Quinn`s first re-election ad on minimum wage

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Gov. Pat Quinn's first re-election ad of the season has hit the airwaves and it targets Republican candidate Bruce Rauner.

The 30-second spot aired on major Chicago television stations Tuesday during primary election coverage when Quinn easily captured the Democratic nomination.

It features clips of Rauner speaking about his changing stance on minimum wage. The Winnetka Republican first said he'd lower the state's $8.25 rate by $1 to the national rate of $7.25. Rauner later said he'd raise the state rate under the right circumstances.

Quinn has made raising the minimum wage an issue for months. He says it should be at least $10 in Illinois by the end of the year. Nationally, Democrats are making a similar push.

Rauner won the Republican nomination Tuesday over three other candidates.
