Who is Ken Griffin? And what does he want for Illinois?
Ken Griffin ranks 41st on the Bloomberg’s Billionaires’ Index, which puts his fortune at $29.3 billion dollars, far and away the wealthiest man in Illinois. Griffin spent in real estate, museums, and other flights of “billionaire whimsy” — but he’s also gotten involved in Illinois politics, and in a big way, donating tens of millions of dollars to support Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin's campaign in the Republican primary for governor.
