CHICAGO (AP) — JB Pritzker wins Democratic nomination for governor in Illinois primary election.

Pritzker defeated a much lesser-known rival, Beverly Miles, as the billionaire business owner seeks his second term in office.

Pritzker will face the winner of a six-candidate Republican field. He has spent millions trying to get the rival he wants and increase his already sizable advantage in the state this fall. Farmer and conservative state Sen. Darren Bailey, the front-runner for the GOP nomination, was endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
