J.B. Pritzker On Running For Governor, Property Taxes And Blagojevich Tapes

Since announcing his run for governor in April, J.B. Pritzker has seen both good and bad news for his campaign. The bad news came when he was forced to defend his conversations with former governor Rod Blagojevich, which came to light in a Chicago Tribune investigation. A week later, some very good news: The state’s largest public employee union, the AFL-CIO, made an early endorsement of Pritzker. Morning Shift talks to J.B. Pritzker about why he wants to be governor.
