The choice is clear

by Beth Camplain | Oct 22, 2018
We must decide between four more years of failed leadership under Bruce Rauner, or support for working families under JB Pritzker.

The stakes are high in this election for education, collective bargaining, and all Illinoisans.

We must decide between four more years of failed leadership and attacks on unions under Bruce Rauner, or adequate school funding, a fair tax system, and support for working families under JB Pritzker. The choice could not be more clear.
