Chris Kennedy Joins Governor’s Race

/ Vandalia Radio

(Chicago, IL)  —  A son of the late Senator Robert Kennedy and nephew of the late President Kennedy is setting his sights on being Governor of Illinois.  In a YouTube video, Chris Kennedy, former head of the Merchandise Mart, says he’ll run as a Democrat because Illinoisans are demanding a change.  In later interviews, Kennedy criticized Govenor Rauner’s handling of his office, calling him heartless and a petulant child.  Rauner didn’t respond, saying he’s only concerned at this point about the budget.  But Rauner’s campaign immediately slammed Kennedy in a fundraising pitch letter as a “Madigan lap dog.”  Other potential Democrat challengers include J.B. Pritzker and Chicago alderman Amaya Pewar.
