The end of the period where candidates file petitions brings us closer to the final ballot lineup. The primary is set for June and candidates are picking up the pace in efforts to introduce themselves to voters and get their message across. We'll discuss the governor's race.

Also, families of some victims who died from COVID-19 at the Lasalle Veteran's Home are suing.

Our panel includes host Sean Crawford, Professor Emeritus Charlie Wheeler, Statehouse Editor Hannah Meisel and Capitol News Illinois' Bureau Chief Jerry Nowicki.

The former director of the Public Affairs Reporting (PAR) graduate program is Professor Charles N. Wheeler III, a veteran newsman who came to the University of Illinois at Springfield following a 24-year career at the Chicago Sun-Times.
Hannah covers state government and politics for Capitol News Illinois. She's been dedicated to the statehouse beat since interning at NPR Illinois in 2014, with subsequent stops at WILL-AM/FM, Law360, Capitol Fax and The Daily Line before returning to NPR Illinois in 2020 and moving on to CNI in 2023.
