* Third party testimonials by better known figures are important for first-time candidates. And lest you think this is being aired now because of the FBI tapes thing, I asked one of Pritzker’s campaign people last week about a vouching ad and was told off the record that something like this was coming soon. Rate it…
Announcer: Why do so many leaders we trust support JB Pritzker for governor?
Sen. Tammy Duckworth: JB’s the one I trust to fight for women, children and families all across Illinois.
Secretary of State Jesse White: JB’s economic plan will create jobs and opportunity in neighborhoods across our state.
Hardhat-wearing guy: He’s the one we trust to stand up for Illinois workers.
Comptroller Susana Mendoza: JB will beat Bruce Rauner and bring real change to Illinois.
Sen. Dick Durbin: As Democrats, we need to come together. Let’s back the candidate ready to lead Illinois. That’s JB.
To be honest, the Democratic leaders look like complete sellouts. These were all people who operated with Blago. Basically defending their own corrupt corporate Democratic machine. Their endorsement makes me want to help and vote Biss.
Yeah, I’m sure the FBI tapes had nothing to do with the timing. They’ve had this ad in the can for weeks, chose to drop it today along with the Taxwinkle endorsement. Not a great look when you have to hide in your bunker and recruit other politicians try to protect you from your own words.
-What about Emil. He mad=
Yes, but Jesse White has every right to be mad at Emil for his inference that Jesse was a “safe black”….”one who isn’t going to say anything”. Jesse too classy to take it to Emil publicly.
He should stay away from all dem’s (espically low approval rating (Toni)). He’s going to dig a deeper hole w/ the AA community (they’ll remember the O’Bama slight & they’ll remember the suntimes cover today) which only helps Kennedy(?)(Is he still running)).

Back to the editing room for a few more AfAm faces for Chicago metro, I would think. Good for a statewide audience though.
Right… because establishment politicians are so popular in the current political climate. This matters to insiders (who are already with JB), and not to voters (who, according to the recent polls, may not be so sold).
