State Rep. Jeanne Ives, who is looking to beat Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner in the Republican primary put the ad out on Saturday and is looking to hit hard at her opponent's values. This person thanks Rauner "for opposing law enforcement and making IL a sanctuary state for illegal immigrant criminals".

After Ives' ad made its rounds on the internet, advocacy groups, Republicans and Democrats lashed out against Ives, calling her video bigoted and offensive. Instead, the legislation allows transgender individuals to change their gender printed on birth certificates with a doctor's approval. He said Ives should pull the ad and "apologize to the Illinoisans who were negatively portrayed".
"The commercial does not attack people, it tackles issues, I truly believe illustrating the constituencies Rauner has chosen to serve, to the exclusion of others", Ives said. Her consultant, Dan Proft, says that money will enable Ives to introduce herself to voters and expose Rauner's record through TV ads.
Rauner and his wife, Diana, are listed as "Platinum Sponsors" of the gala, which means they donated more than $15,000 to Equality Illinois and receive two "VIP" tables for twenty guests "within the two rows closest to the stage".

I'm not only gonna vote for her, I'm gonna send her some of my money because she's the real deal".
John McGlasson, of Pontiac, who is a member of the state Republican central committee for the 16th Congressional District, said in a statement he was concerned Schneider was taking sides in the primary by objecting to the campaign ad.
Tim Schneider, the head of the Illinois GOP Party issued a statement saying "There is no place in the Illinois Republican Party for rhetoric that attacks our fellow Illinoisans based on their race, gender or humanity". I call on the Ives campaign to immediately take it off the air.
"A (new) leader, I believe, will show true conservative principles with strong action and efforts to improve the economic health of IL, and better represent the majority in this state - morally, ethically, principled, and fiscal conservatives", Moore told the Metro East Sun.
