Democrats will face a well-funded incumbent in Gov. Bruce Rauner, who earlier this month had $50.8 million on hand for his re-election campaign.
Pritzker portrayed Rauner as in league with the Republican president, but he also said the governor was afraid to stand up to Trump.
Sneed is informed Dem dollar powerhouse J.B. Pritzker, a billionaire businessman and major Dem donor, will announce his bid today to run for governor.
Biss said he’s not focused on one person — be it Madigan or Rauner — but aims to change a system that caters to the wealthy and machine politicians.
