Preview of 2022 in Illinois politics
We are at the beginning of what’s expected to be an interesting year in Illinois politics, with expensive, rough political fights in both the primary and general elections. And those primaries are going to be happening on a different timeline than we’re used to here in Illinois. Rather than being in March or February, it was moved back to June. That was in part to give the Democrats in Springfield more time to draw new legislative district boundaries for the state House and Senate, as well as for Illinois’ representatives in Congress. Plus, there are the top-of-the-ticket races for governor and US Senate.
To discuss all of this, The 21st was joined by two political reporters.
