State Week: After Last-Minute Lawsuit, Pritzker Pushes Back

The Democratic candidate for Illinois governor is facing a racial discrimination lawsuit against his campaign — from 10 of his own campaign workers.

With early voting underway and less than three weeks until Election Day, he denies the allegations and is pushing back hard.

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler and Brian Mackey, and guest Amanda Vinicky of Chicago Tonight, which airs on PBS station WTTW. Daisy Contreras is away.

Watch Vinicky's documentary on Gov. Bruce Rauner here and her colleague Paris Schutz's reporting on Pritzker here. Both films were first broadcast on WTTW's Chicago Tonight.
