Rauner Says He'll Release Taxes Before Election



    Republican candidate for Illinois governor Bruce Rauner  says he'll release his 2013 income tax returns once they're ready.

    Rauner Spokesman Mike Schrimpf says Rauner got a six-month extension of the April 15 filing deadline. He says Rauner will make his returns public before the Nov. 4 election.
    Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn's campaign has called on Rauner to release his 2013 returns and more information about prior years as the two face off in a highly competitive race.
    Schrimpf says it's "nothing but a political stunt." He says Rauner pro-actively released three years of returns.
    Quinn's 2013 returns show he made about $161,000 last year. Rauner's 2012 returns show the Winnetka businessman made $53 million that year.
    Quinn was set to hold a news conference on the issue Tuesday afternoon.
