Stephen Maynard Caliendo provided analysis on J.B. Pritzker’s reelection announcement

Governor J.B. Pritzker is running for reelection. Pritzker made the announcement he will seek a second term as Illinois' governor Monday, July 19 on Twitter. Pritzker's re-election announcement came with a video highlighting his work to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in Illinois, support Illinoisans who lost work and benefits during the pandemic, and to roll out the vaccine as quickly as possible. It also highlighted his efforts to bolster small businesses during the pandemic and putting science first in his decision making.

Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, interviewed with ABC 7 Chicago reporter Craig Wall to discuss the governor’s announcement.

"If there was any surprise at all it's that the entire three-minute video centered on the pandemic that there really wasn't much discussion of other things that happened in his first term," said Caliendo.
