Breen warns against Pritzker corruption, 'bad faith' actions
Rep. Peter Breen (R-Lombard) calls J.B. Pritzker’s gubernatorial campaign more of the same corruption that has long plagued the state and is not what Illinois needs.
“J.B. Pritzker, as one of my colleagues, declared, he only made $15 million in income but had $120 million available to spend on his political campaign," Breen said during a recent press conference with other state Republican lawmakers. "So this guy is bad faith in a state where we have had enough bad faith, we have had enough corruption. We need people, leaders, and policies that give people hope for the future and that's something Gov. [Bruce] Rauner is trying to bring to the state and we fully support him in terms of those policies that will turn around our state."
Breen has represented the 48th District since his first general election win in 2014 when he took more than 90 percent of the vote over write-in challenger Marian Tomlinson of Glen Ellyn. He ran unopposed in the Republican primary in March and faces Democrat Terra Costa Howard in the upcoming general election.
The 48th district is located within DuPage County and includes all or parts of Lombard, Glen Ellyn and Lisle.
