If current polling is even close to accurate, J.B Pritzker will be Illinois Governor and Toni Preckwinkle will be Mayor of Chicago.
Preckwinkle would vacate her current office as Cook County Board President, which then might well be filled by John Daley (yes, that Daley family.) Another possibility would bet Bill Daley (same family) joining the race for mayor and Preckwinkle staying at Cook County.
In the General Assembly, majority control by the Machine looks assured, with the House and Senate run by Mike Madigan and John Cullerton, respectively.
Yes, we’re looking at a clean sweep by traditional Chicago Machine politicians.
Pritzker, Preckwinkle, Daley, Madigan, Cullerton.
For now, I have no words.
