Pritzker Campaign Apologizes For ‘Terrorist’ Comment In 1998
(Chicago, IL) — Democratic candidate J.B. Pritzker’s campaign is not hiding from comments he made almost 20 years ago that are drawing anger from some Muslim American groups. A Pritzker spokeswoman yesterday said that he apologizes for a 1998 comment when he compared some Muslims to terrorists. But the campaign added Pritzker went on to lead Illinois’ Human Rights Commission and has been a strong opponent of President Trump’s comments and proposed Muslim ban.
