Insight into 2022 in Illinois Politics | The 21st show
We are at the start of what should be an interesting year for Illinois politics, with costly and harsh political fights in the primary and general elections. And these primaries are going to take place on a different timeline than we’re used to here in Illinois. Rather than being in March or February, it was postponed to June. This was in part to give Springfield Democrats more time to draw new legislative constituency boundaries for the state House and Senate, as well as for Illinois representatives in Congress. In addition, there are high-end races for the Governor and the United States Senate.
To discuss all of this, The 21st was joined by two political reporters.
