I read somewhere that Illinois has been upgraded three consecutive years. It hadn’t been upgraded in decades. Absolute incredible job by Pritzker. I’m excited to see where he can take us

JB is awesome. Would love to see him in the white house.

As has been noted on numerous other threads, we are still dead last or perhaps 49th. If JB is serious about the White House then he needs to address the Illinois pension issue. That will involve a constitutional amendment and standing up to the unions. If he does it though, it could propel him to the Presidency.
