Gubernatorial Candidate Pritzker Goes On Offensive Against Trump

Aug 1, 2017


Illinois Democratic gubernatorial candidate J. B. Pritzker is presenting a formal plan to fight against President Donald Trump’s policies

For example, Pritzker said he supports a bill to keep abortion legal in Illinois if Roe versus Wade is overturned.

"Donald Trump is an egotistical bigot," he said. "Donald Trump is a xenophobe, and he’s a misogynist who cares more about a personal win than about how his policies affect American families."


The candidate says Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has been “silent” on issues as President Trump has discussed them.During last year’s campaign, Rauner repeatedly declined to talk about Trump.


Other Democrats running for governor include: Daniel Biss, Bob Daiber, Scott Drury, Chris Kennedy, and Ameya Pawar.
