Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner is refusing to comment on a controversial statement made by his fellow Republican, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk.
Asked last week about a recent cash payment to Iran contingent on the release of American prisoners, Kirk said President Obama was "acting as the drug dealer in chief."
Kirk and other Republicans have criticized the payment as ransom.
Rauner was asked Monday about Kirk’s characterization of Obama. He replied, "No comment."
