Illinois Governor-elect Bruce Rauner.

CHICAGO (AP) _ A spokeswoman for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn is calling Republican challenger Bruce Rauner’s disclosure of his 2013 federal and state income tax returns inadequate.

The eight pages of tax forms indicate Rauner and wife, Diana, earned nearly $61 million last year. He paid $17 million in federal and state taxes. That is a combined tax rate of about 27.5 percent.

In her statement, Quinn campaign spokeswoman Brooke Anderson called the information “wholly insufficient and raises more questions than answers.” Anderson questioned where Rauner’s money comes from and  “what loopholes is he jumping through?”

Quinn has long called on Rauner to release his tax returns.

The Rauners’ returns show they donated more than $5 million to charity. That includes $1 million to Red Cross relief efforts after the Washington, Illinois tornado.
