The 2022 campaign cycle is already underway with statewide candidates from both parties announcing their intentions. The Illinois Republican Party is joining the fray, launching a cycle-long campaign to oust incumbent Illinois Governor, Democrat JB Pritzker. ILGOP Chairman Don Tracy has released the following statement announcing the campaign:
“From Cairo to Chicago, Quincy to Danville, the people of Illinois are saying enough is enough. No more tax hikes, unbalanced budgets, and radical leftist agendas - and no more unaccountable rule by one man shutting down our economy and destroying Illinois’ future. It’s time we FIRE PRITZKER.
The Illinois Republican Party is committed to spending the time, energy, and resources it will take to rid Illinois of our failed Governor. Pritzker ran as an autocrat who would get back the basics of running government. Instead, we got a campaign to raise taxes, a ‘police reform’ bill that makes us less safe, indoctrination of our students, an incompetant unemployment system, over 30 dead veterans at a state facility, and king-like rule during the pandemic - indefinitely shutting down our economy and never consulting the legislature.
Pritzker’s leadership has been terrible for Illinois and people are voting with ‘For Sale’ signs in their front yards. In just the last year, 80,000 Illinoisans - second in the nation - fled the state for lower taxes, less corruption, and better opportunities. The ‘FIRE PRITZKER’ campaign is about harnessing the anger over our friends and family leaving and putting it to good use, defeating JB Pritzker in 2022.”
The ILGOP has launched FirePritzker.org, a website hub where individuals can get involved in the movement to defeat JB Pritzker in the next gubernatorial election by signing up to volunteer, donating, or buying gear such as yard signs, t-shirts or bumper stickers.
If anyone has time, talent, or resources to give to the cause, they should visit FirePritzker.org and sign up today.

Morning, Rich – A response from Mary Morrissey, Executive Director of DPI:
“What exactly is the GOP plan for the state of Illinois other than denying science and voting against COVID relief funds? We’ve heard the same tired attacks against Governor Pritzker since he took office, but we’ve yet to hear any solid plans to support our workers and families and move past this catastrophic pandemic. I guess we’ll keep waiting.”
