Chicago Treasurer Kurt Summers says he will NOT run for Illinois governor. Instead - he’s endorsing one of the Democrats hoping to unseat Republican incumbent Bruce Rauner.
Summers went so far as to ask Cook County Democratic Party leaders for their endorsement. But today - Summers said he’s not running for governor, without really explaining why.
He endorsed billionaire venture capitalist JB Pritzker, saying Pritzker would best serve the African-American community as governor.
