The 2022 race for governor has pitted two opposite candidates against each other: a Chicago billionaire and businessman in Gov. JB Pritzker and downstate conservative farmer in Sen. Darren Bailey (R-Xenia).
Both candidates made their pitches to farmers Wednesday at an Illinois Farm Bureau forum in Lexington where Pritzker listed his accomplishments over the last four years to argue he’s a better option for governor for farmers than career farmer Bailey.
