A downstate Illinois lawmaker is mulling around the idea of running for Governor of Illinois; however, a decision could come later this summer. State Senator Jason Barickman said he wants to decide with his family.
Currently, candidates who have announced intentions on running for Governor include Illinois State Senator Darrin Bailey, former State Senator Paul Schimpf, and Illinois businessman Gary Rabine. Gov. Pritzker has yet to announce intentions to run for reelection.
