Days before the election, a leading motorcycle group is rescinding its endorsement of Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner.
ABATE of Illinois' political action committee says it’s disappointed in a recent executive order from the governor.
ABATE warns that the current technology isn’t good enough to spot bikers and prevent collisions.
In a statement, it says the governor's actions “represent a danger to the lives of motorcyclists.”
It also says Rauner’s executive order is a “serious departure” from what was previously communicated to the group.
Riding motorcycles has always been a big part of Rauner’s political persona.
