Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced some “big news” on Monday. He’s running for re-election.

“We’ve been through a lot,” Pritzker wrote in a tweet, “and I’ve been so proud to see Illinoisans come together during the toughest of times.”

Pritzker said he’s “excited to fight for the state I love” alongside Lieutenant Governor Juliana Stratton, “and there’s no limit to what we can do going forward.”

Pritzker has been coy up until now about whether he planned to run again for governor.

Pritzker became Illinois’ 43rd governor in January 2019. A little more than a year later, Pritzker ordered residents to “stay at home” as the coronavirus began to take hold.

He posted the announcement Monday along with a campaign video showing his response to the coronavirus pandemic in Illinois.
