Rauner Made More Than $188 Million In 2015

Gov. Bruce Rauner made more than $188 million last year, according to income tax returns released Friday by his office. That's three times as much money Rauner made in 2014, when his returns showed he earned $58.3 million in taxable income. According to the newly released documents, Rauner paid more than $50 million in federal and state taxes in 2015. 

In addition to releasing the tax returns he files jointly with his wife, the Rauner administration also released tax information from nonprofit Rauner Family Foundation. 

Rauner made his fortune as a venture capitalist before taking office in 2014. After being sworn in, Rauner put his investments in a blind trust. 

One way Rauner has spent his personal fortune is by helping the Illinois Republican Party. He contributed more than $25 million this year to help boost the number of Republicans in the General Assembly. Republicans claimed six seats in the legislature from Democrats in Tuesday's general election. 

You can see Rauner's tax returns below.
