Among the wealthy Republicans supporting Reform PAC is businessman Bruce Rauner who's also running for Illinois governor in 2014. The PAC's organizers filed paperwork with the State Board of Elections Monday. Rauner is also chairman of the recently formed Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits.
