Hey, Illinois! It's Christmas in July!
Well, that's what Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady thinks, according to his latest campaign ad.
The ad calls out Governor Pat Quinn following news that a large number of his staff received big pay raises--despite the state's desperate financial situation.
"It's Christmas in July," the narrator says. "And Pat Quinn thinks he's Santa Claus."
The ad also mentions the state's massive amount of unpaid bills, painting Quinn as "clueless" and unable to handle the deficit. Though, Brady has been unclear about what his solutions to the budget crisis are as well.
