Shadowy political group propping up Rauner's campaign

Republican candidates Bruce Rauner, Illinois, and David Perdue, in Georgia, have a few things in common. They’re both former businessmen without any previous political experience. Both are also clients of political strategist Nick Ayers and they both had attack ads funded by the Ohio-based nonprofit, Jobs & Progress Fund. Ayers is a partner at Target Enterprises and works for the groups funding these ads. Russ Choma, the money & politics reporter at the Center for Responsive Politics, who investigated Ayer's involvement in the Jobs & Progress Fund joins us to discuss. Photo Credit: Wordpress
