Big Labor Backing Pritzker

(Chicago, IL)  —  Some of Illinois’ largest and most politically active unions are picking sides in the 2018 race for Illinois governor.  The Operating Engineers Local 150 Wednesday joined more than a dozen other unions in endorsing JB Pritzker.  Pritzker, the billionaire Democrat, is quickly becoming the frontrunner in a crowded Democratic field to take on Governor Rauner next fall.
