CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has won the Democratic nomination for reelection.

Pritzker on Tuesday defeated a much lesser-known rival, Beverly Miles.

The billionaire business owner is seeking his second term in office.

Pritzker will face the winner of a six-candidate Republican field.

Farmer and state lawmaker Darren Bailey is the front-runner for the GOP nomination.

He’s been endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
