Billionaire J.B. Pritzker wins Illinois Democratic governor primary on strength of $70 million campaign

Billionaire J.B. Pritzker cruised to victory Tuesday night in the Illinois Democratic governor primary, his record-setting $70 million campaign allowing him to build a formidable operation his underfunded rivals could not overcome.

“I’m J.B. Pritzker, and I’m going to beat Bruce Rauner,” said the candidate, who took the stage in a Chicago hotel ballroom to the song “Go Big or Go Home” by the group American Authors. “And together, we’re going to put Springfield back on the side of working families.”
