Rauner claims victory in Republican primary

Rauner claims victory in Republican primary

In the campaign's final days, the Democratic Governors Association sneaked into the fray, running a television ad attacking Ms. Ives as "too conservative" - presumably a veiled attempt to give Ms. Ives a boost in the hopes that she could overtake Mr. Rauner in the primary.

Billionaire J.B. Pritzker secured the Illinois Democratic Party's nomination for governor on Tuesday, after spending tens of millions of dollars of his own money to vault over the other major candidates in the race, including progressive state Sen.

"To those around the state of IL who wanted to send me a message, let me be clear", Rauner said.

In a year when the Democratic electorate is energized, the party likes its chances of unseating Rauner, 61, one of the most unpopular governors in the country.

James Strugala, 76, of the Chicago suburb of Berwyn, bought the pitch, saying Biss is "somewhere closer to me than the other guys".

"He bailed on conservatives", McSweeney said. On the Republican side, incumbent Gov. Bruce Rauner is still locked in a tight race with an insurgent challenger, state Rep. Jeanne Ives. He then ran ads critical of her.

Rauner widely was criticized for signing the pro-abortion law. The 53-year-old is likely to face Republican governor of the state Bruce Rauner in November this year.

"He's done the best job he could", said Haley, 58. "Pritzker is a radical tax-and-spend liberal, and I think he would be very destructive for this state". Pat Quinn - whom Rauner ousted in 2014 - was locked in a tough competition with state Sen. Raoul vowed to be a strong advocate for consumer and environmental rights and join other states attorneys general in combating the Trump administration. Lipinski's win means he will face off against Arthur Jones, who ran unopposed in the Republican primary after the head of the Illinois GOP denounced him as a Nazi for his denial of the Holocaust, as The New York Times reports. Predictions range from $250 million to $300 million spent on this governor race. Pritzker himself won about 560,000 in a crowded field of six candidates in a Democratic primary where more than 1.2 million votes were cast. Pritzker, along with Rauner, blanketed the airwaves with campaign ads in recent months. The Democratic front-runner has been advertising on television from almost the moment he announced his candidacy 11 months ago. Pritzker maintained that those accounts were focused on charitable giving and that he had no control over them. Robert F. Kennedy's son and $2 million by Biss.

In the "Thank you, Bruce Rauner" commercial, an actor portrayed a transgender woman wearing a dress. The ads included a 30-minute infomercial-style ad with the full Federal Bureau of Investigation recordings.

Rauner didn't take any time to savor his victory.

The Republican Governors Association, meanwhile, labeled Pritzker a "self-serving IL political insider".

Pritzker apologized for his comment flanked by African-American officials backing him, including White, who still serves as secretary of state.

Trucking company worker Joe Nowak of Summit in suburban Chicago says he voted for Democratic billionaire J.B. Pritzker, citing the need for change.

Rauner's tenure has been defined by virtually incessant conflict with the Democratic-controlled legislature and its influential leader, House Speaker Mike Madigan. Rauner had a lower approval rating than President Donald Trump in a state Trump lost by more than 20 points but he still narrowly defeated extreme conservative Jeanne Ives. Rauner was plagued by a lack of state budget during his first term, as Democratic and Republican state legislators led by Madigan and Rauner squared off in a budget stalemate that lasted more than two years.
