Pritzker’s National Ambitions
In 2022, Governor. JB Pritzker (D-Illinois) won reelection to lead The 21st state. But the billionaire governor continues to be the subject of national coverage. Pritzker's name is often floated as a presidential candidate if President Joe Biden drops out of the the 2024 presidential race (Biden says he is running). In a 2022 interview, Pritzker told The 21st he is only focused on the state of Illinois. And recently, the governor launched a self-funded nationwide abortion rights advocacy organization. We're talking to the writer of an in-depth profile story in The New Yorker on Gov. Pritzker.
