Pritzker pours $7 million of fortune into Democratic governor bid

From the Chicago Tribune: Billionaire investor and businessman J.B. Pritzker on Friday put $7 million of his fortune into his Democratic bid for Illinois governor, a further reflection of the big money that will flow into the 2018 race.

The contribution comes little more than a week after Pritzker formally kicked off his campaign. He previously put $200,000 into what had been an exploratory committee.

Pritzker, who has a net worth estimated by Forbes of $3.4 billion, has indicated he would be willing to self-fund his campaign for governor and assist in other Democratic races as he seeks the opportunity to take on Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner in November 2018.
