Bruce Rauner Biography
(42nd Governor of Illinois)
Birthday: February 18, 1957 (Aquarius)
Born In: Chicago, Illinois, U.S.
Bruce Rauner is an American businessman and politician, currently serving as the 42nd Governor of Illinois. He took office in 2015 after winning the general election over Democratic nominee Pat Quinn. The results ran close, with both surpassing the other several times during the counting of votes. However, Quinn lost the elections by only four perfect. With this, the governor’s seat in Illinois returned back to the Republican Party after 12 long years. Having great experience in trade and capital, he always seemed a more favorable candidate right from the start, even though he was running elections against a strong competitor. But since Quinn was unable to undo the “indecisive” tag attached to his name, it paved the way for Rauner. His strong view on promotion of public charter schools and education has rendered him a philanthropist in public eyes. From a valet to a wealthy business, his journey has been inspirational to many Americans. His grit and determination has helped him cross several milestones in life. With all he has achieved until now, he still holds onto his humble beginning as the grandson of a dairyman, and uses it as a beacon to encourage others to be visionaries.
