There’s another Republican running for governor in Illinois. Downstate Republican state Senator Darren Bailey on Monday jumped into the race against JB Pritzker. Bailey made a name for himself in Springfield by standing-up against the governor and his coronavirus orders. Bailey says his campaign will focus on fixing the state for the people who are not in and around Chicago. Former Republican state Senator Paul Schimpf announced his campaign last week.
