Pritzker's record tops among Dems

Pritzker's record tops among Dems

When I look for someone to vote for, I look into their record and what they've done in the past.

That's why I'm supporting J.B. Pritzker for governor. J.B. has spent the past 20 years of his life fighting for bold progressive policies that have improved people's lives.

His work led to the expansion of early childhood education to thousands of children across the state and made Illinois a leader in pre-kindergarten education. He also worked to expand school breakfast programs.

He's marched for LGBTQ rights, for women's rights, for a fairer tax system and for collective bargaining rights. He's the only candidate endorsed and supported by over 20 unions, including the IFT, AFL-CIO and AFFI.

When it comes to other candidates, their records don't pass the test.

Daniel Biss actively worked to cut middle-class retirement plans, leading the charge for an unconstitutional pension bill. He proclaims to support single-payer but voted against it twice in Springfield. He says he's against Speaker Mike Madigan but voted for him as speaker. He says he's against special interest groups but has a long record of accepting thousands of dollars from big banks, lobbyists and pharmaceutical companies. He even ran a super PAC himself.

In elections, records matter. I'm supporting the candidate whose platform matches his record, not some career politician who flips on the issues now that he's running for governor. That's why I'm supporting J.B. for governor.
