Rep. Cheri Bustos Endorses J.B. Pritzker for Illinois Governor

Bustos says Pritzker will focus on Illinois as a whole

ROCKFORD - Democratic candidate for governor J.B. Pritzker scores an endorsement from Democratic Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL).

Pritzker and Bustos flew around her district Monday to announce her endorsement -- from Peoria to the Quad Cities -- and then here in Rockford. Pritzker has been accused by his opponents of being too close to House Speaker Mike Madigan and Chicago politics. Bustos believes otherwise.

"He understands that downstate needs are different from needs in Chicago and I want to make sure that our next governor is going for us as well as fight for those out of Chicago and Cook County," Bustos explained.

Pritzker is one of seven announced Democratic candidates for the nomination.
