To the Editor:
This week, as I watched our state again being run by two deep-pocketed candidates for governor and had already sunk more than $120 million combined into the race, it made me sick.
In this critical time in Illinois, two men who have this amount of money to waste to win the primary should show all the people in Illinois how corrupt Illinois has become. We have people in our state who are highly educated, who could provide us with a balanced budget, plus add jobs for our young people and help the elderly who are struggling to pay their bills, but they do not have deep pockets.
There needs to be a limit on what a candidate can spend when running and make this amount low enough that those who are interested in making our state great again are eligible to be a candidate.
Why didn’t these candidates put that $120 million-plus they spent on campaigning to help the people of Illinois instead of worrying about who is going to be our next governor of a state which is in debt, has more governors in prison than any other state, and the highest unemployment — plus the laughingstock of every comedian.
