As expected, former state Senator Paul Schimpf has made it official. He’s running for governor.
Schimpf announced Monday that he will run for the Republican nomination with an aim to unseat Governor J.B. Pritzker in 2022.
The move was expected after he commented in early January that he was one of nine Illinois Republicans considering vying for the seat.
