If you haven't noticed which Republican candidate for governor seems to be the most threatening to Gov. JB Pritzker, just watch some television, there will be a commercial pushing for another GOP hopeful paid for by a Democratic group that makes an obvious point.
That candidate who seems to be the target of those ads is Richard Irvin and he made a stop in Pontiac Saturday morning with State Sen. Jason Barickman hosting at Pontiac Family Restaurant.
“We've got a lot of red around Illinois but Illinois is run by Democrats, so, this is our guy, this is the opportunity we have,” Barickman said in making his introduction of Irvin to the audience in the banquet room. “The reason I'm supporting Richard, very clearly, I know that to effect change in Illinois, we have to fire JB Pritzker and this is the guy who gives us that chance.”
