The Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group released a poll for Land of Lincoln gubernatorial candidate Chris Kennedy (6/26-29; 602 IL likely Democratic primary voters) and found the Chicago businessman and son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY) still leading venture capitalist J.B. Pritzker, 44-38%, even after the latter just completed airing an $8 million electronic media blitz. The early Illinois primary occurs in March, explaining why we are already seeing a great deal of action here. The winner faces Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) in the 2018 general election, in what will likely be a toss-up race from beginning to end.
