Two area lawmakers have officially given their backing to J.B. Pritzker to be Illinois’ next governor. 48th District State Senator Andy Manar and 96th District Representative Sue Scherer both made the announcement Thursday.
Manar says he has seen Pritzker in action over the past year, and he has put a lot of thought into this endorsement.
Scherer says Pritzker truly cares about all of Illinois, and he gave her all the time she needed to get to know him.
Pritzker is one of a handful of democratic candidates who have announced their campaign for Illinois’ top job.
