We are only four months from the November election.

And the race is getting heated for Illinois governor.

On Thursday the democratic candidate for lieutenant governor stopped at Black Hawk College attacking republican businessman Bruce Rauner's budget plan.

 "This is a plan that's going to have serious consequences, negative consequences on the quality of our schools, to the quality of our workforce, the quality of business environment," said Paul Vallas.

Republican Bruce Rauner recently released his budget plan for Illinois.

He wants to roll the state's income tax back to original levels and close tax loopholes.

But the Quinn campaign says that will cost over $8 billion in revenue,

And money coming from the general funds used for community college, education, and job training would suffer as a result.

Incumbent Governor Pat Quinn is running against Rauner in the November 4th election.
