CHICAGO -- Hillary Clinton has campaigned for Democratic Illinois governor candidate J.B. Pritzker during a stop in Chicago.
Clinton joined a round table discussion on leadership Monday with Pritzker, his running mate state Rep. Juliana Stratton and a group of high school women.
Pritzker is trying to unseat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who's considered one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents seeking re-election this fall.
Clinton was born and raised in Illinois. She easily carried the state in the 2016 presidential election, besting Donald Trump by almost 20 points.
Pritzker, a billionaire businessman and heir to the Hyatt hotel fortune, was a top donor to Clinton's presidential bids.
Last week Pritzker contributed $20 million to his own campaign, bringing the total he's given his campaign to over $146 million.
Pritzker was under fire again for the what a leaked Cook County Inspector General’s report called a scheme to defraud county taxpayers, when his wife ordered toilets be removed from a Gold Coast mansion they owned.
The property was reassessed and deemed uninhabitable. It led to Pritzker getting refunds for several years’ worth of taxes to the tune of about $331,000.
Rauner’s campaign said in a statement that the report, “proves what we knew all along; JB Pritzker is a fraud.” Campaign spokesman Will Allison also called it “fraudulent tax dodging” and proof Pritzker “lied to voters.”
