SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford says he is not behind a TV ad blasting Congressman Aaron Schock's "fiscal cliff" vote.
Rutherford denied the accusations Friday during an interview on News Radio 1470.
The ad in question accuses Schock of voting for tax increases, but Schock says his vote cut taxes.
Crane's Chicago Business Magazine mentioned Rutherford or a group called Americans for Limited Government as possible sources behind the commercial.
Rutherford says since he is close to announcing a run for Governor, it's not surprising his name had been brought up. Schock is also a rumored candidate for Governor.
