Today, the Cook County Democratic Party officially endorsed J-B Pritzker’s campaign for Illinois governor ahead of next year’s primary.
Pritzker says he doesn’t need the party’s money - the billionaire has already given his own campaign more than $21 million dollars. But the endorsement means organizational help and his name on mailers.
Pritzker addressed Cook County Democratic officials this morning (FRI).
PRITZKER: Like no other candidate in this race, I am focused on building up the party, uniting the Democratic Party.
