JB Pritzker launches 1st TV ads in Dem primary for governor

CHICAGO (AP) — Billionaire J.B. Pritzker is launching the first television ads of the Democratic primary for Illinois governor. Pritzker’s campaign will begin running a 60-second ad statewide on Tuesday. The ad is aimed at introducing voters to Pritzker, who doesn’t have the name recognition of some of his rivals, especially outside of Chicago. Other Democrats seeking the March 2018 nomination include Chris Kennedy, state Sen. Daniel Biss and Chicago Alderman Ameya Pawar.
