The J.B. Way …
The deed is done. The time is now. It’s on.
Sneed is informed Dem dollar powerhouse J.B. Pritzker, a billionaire businessman and major Dem donor, will officially announce his bid today to run for governor in the Democratic primary.
The roll-out of the Pritzker campaign, which he is capable of self funding, follows in the wake of a major fundraiser in New York tossed for Dem primary opponent Chris Kennedy by his sister, Kerry Kennedy.
Pritzker has been steadily moving closer to a launch.
