Mike Ditka endorses Da Bruce (R CAND) for Illinois-GOV.

It’s illustrative that when Pat Quinn’s campaign wanted to push back on Mike Ditka endorsing Bruce Rauner for Illinois governor…


..they didn’t say a word about Ditka. And here’s the thing: Mike Ditka endorsed Pat Quinn in 2010.  This is an endorsement that Quinn wanted.  The campaign can’t be happy that Ditka has since switched his support back to the GOP.

Not much else to say, really, except to note that this endorsement probably will help Rauner.  Mike Ditka, after all, has a somewhat positive reputation in Illinois*.

PS: Bruce Rauner for Governor.

*Yes, of course I’m dryly understating.
