The attorney who has led legal challenges against Governor Pritzker’s pandemic policies is seeking the Republican nomination for Illinois attorney General.  Thomas DeVore announced his candidacy on a Facebook video Monday.  DeVore filed the lawsuit that led the Illinois Appellate Court last week to reject Pritzker’s appeal of a lower court ruling that lifted his school masking policy.  The governor has appealed the appellate court ruling to the Illinois Supreme Court.
