CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner has launched a coalition of supporters from the Latino community, a group that traditionally shows Democratic support.

Rauner and running mate Evelyn Sanguinetti announced Amigos de Rauner-Sanguinetti on Sunday afternoon at a Mexican restaurant on the city's Southwest Side. The campaign released a list of coalition members. It includes business leaders, bankers, attorneys, religious leaders and a Winnebago County board member.

Sanguinetti is the daughter of immigrants from Cuba and Ecuador.

Rauner said at the Sunday event that he wants to help Hispanic families - many of whom, he says, own small businesses - and who have been hurt by what he called high taxes and unreasonable government regulations while Quinn has been governor.

The coalition includes a Spanish-language website.
