Illinois Democratic candidate for Governor J.B. Pritzker and his Lieutenant Governor pick Juliana Stratton arrive during his primary election night victory speech on March 20, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois.
Gov. Rauner narrowly edged out state Rep. Jeanne Ives, R-Wheaton by a margin of 51 percent to 48 percent Tuesday night, with Rep. Ives capturing more than 330,000 votes.
Polls are opening across IL in a primary that is being widely watched because of the money being spent in the governor's race. But the narrow wins also exposed the danger traditional candidates face in what has been a turbulent election year. The heavily Hispanic and Democratic district covers Mexican, Puerto Rican and Central American swaths of Chicago and several suburbs.

The Republican Governors Association, meanwhile, labeled Pritzker a "self-serving IL political insider".
Rauner, 61, took advantage of a national GOP wave four years ago to pull off a surprising victory in a state otherwise dominated by Democrats and win his first political office. The group also funded a challenge to House Minority Leader Jim Durkin, who didn't vote for the tax increase but attracted conservative anger for his failure to hold his caucus together and stop it. Durkin won easily. Associated Press writers Don Babwin in Chicago and Sarah Zimmerman in Springfield contributed. That's exactly why Khaleelah Muta-Ali voted. He also voted for religious freedom bills that are viewed as making it easier for private businesses to discriminate against gay customers. "We'll bring unity back to the party". "It's going to be a very negative campaign", said Shaw. Newman is challenging seven-term Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinski. Jan Schakowsky (D) and Luis V. Gutiérrez (D). IL is heavily in debt, both in terms of its regular budget and its $130 billion in pension debt. Rauner says that's not good for taxpayers, but his own platforms are.
Pritzker has put roughly $70 million into his campaign as he now turns his attention to the November election.
Other issues are likely to come up during the campaign include taxes, job growth, wages, the opioid epidemic, gun violence, rights of women and LGBTQ people, as well as support of the president and his plans for immigration and healthcare.
The Republican primary was not one of the marquee competitions heading into the primary.
Even with Lipinski surviving, the fact that Newman battled him to a near draw will embolden liberals in other Democratic primary battles and in the larger struggle for party identity. Simply having fewer candidates won't guarantee any dropoff in the amount of yard signs and fundraising efforts and advertising campaigns that will sweep across newspapers, radio, television, social media and even email, phone calls and folks knocking on your front door asking for a moment of your time.
