Another Democrat joined the race for Governor on this week and this one can, if he wants, outspend the current one. J.B. Pritzker who Forbes says is the third wealthiest person in Illinois fired his first shot of many at the Governor while kicking off his campaign in Chicago.
Pritzker says this race won’t be about money, although there are a number of very rich candidates already. Pritzker took on Rauner and fact that the Governor has gone two years with out a state budget.
Pritzker was quickly jumped on the by the Republican Party, calling him Mike Madigan’s billionaire.
