Philanthropist Chris Kennedy (D), venture capitalist J.B. Pritzker (D), and state Sen. Daniel Biss (D) said Wednesday they all “plan to participate in … six debates and forums” from Jan. 23-March 14. (Chicago Sun-Times)

DIGITAL BREAKDOWN. Gov. Bruce Rauner’s (R) campaign released a digital ad “highlighting J.B. Pritzker’s shady tax history.” (Capitol Fax) Pritzker: “I released way more information than Bruce Rauner has, and it’s important to recognize that unlike Bruce Rauner, who, yeah, he paid taxes, but you know how he made his money? By cutting jobs. By buying companies and firing people.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

Pritzker released a video splicing together negative news about the state with Rauner’s statement that he is “not in charge.” (release) Pritzker released a video detailing his favorite TV series and concerts. (Twitter)

State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R) “is scheduled to hold a Thursday news conference to unveil legislation that would repeal an immigration law … Rauner signed. … The law protects immigrants who are in the country illegally from being detained solely because of their immigration status.” (Chicago Tribune)

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRITZKER AND HILLARY CLINTON. Pritzker Campaign Manager Anne Caprara, who ran a super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, “said the stunning outcome of the 2016 presidential wasn’t because Clinton had a primary election cakewalk and was caught off guard by tough criticism in the general election.”

Caprara: “It was an eye opening experience for me … Hillary Clinton was the most battle-tested candidate in the history of the Republic. She walked into that race with people’s opinions really hardened. .l.. I think the unique opportunity with J.B. is people don’t have hardened opinions about him. There are new people and new faces with our Democratic politics at the moment. I think people are looking at who are the next political leaders.” (Politico)
