2018 Candidates - Governor

Democratic Candidates for the 2018 General Election

JB Pritzker & Juliana Stratton

Candidate - IL Governor and Lieutenant Governor
I'm JB Pritzker and I'm running for governor of Illinois.

Illinois is my home. This is where I’ve raised my family, where I built a business and where I’ve created programs to improve the lives of people across the state.

What’s happening now in Springfield is offensive to our values. Bruce Rauner’s failure as governor is creating real damage every day to people across Illinois.

None of us can afford to sit on the sidelines. We have to stand up for what we believe in. That’s why I’m running for Governor and why I’m so proud to have a champion for working families like Juliana Stratton as my running mate.

Juliana Stratton has been serving Illinois and fighting for what’s right her entire career. As the Director of the Center for Public Safety and Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Juliana worked to build trust between law enforcement and our communities. As a mediator, Juliana brings people together and solves problems. As a state representative, Juliana has worked to reform our criminal justice system, fought to raise the minimum wage, and stood up for a woman’s right to choose.
