A press release from Kash Jackson, Libertarian Party Candidate for Governor:
CHICAGO, IL – Libertarian Candidate for Governor Kash Jackson congratulated Bruce Rauner and J.B. Pritzker on their wins in the Illinois Primary on Tuesday. While the Libertarian Party is not yet officially on the ballot, Jackson let them know that he will be serious competition in November’s election.
“Tuesday we found out who I will battle for the Illinois governor’s seat. Their best hope was not to get the nomination, because now they’re going to have to answer how they lost to a third-party candidate this November,” Jackson said.
A twenty-year Navy veteran turned civil rights activist, Jackson strongly advocates for judicial and criminal justice reform. His platform includes support for a balanced state budget, and for ending corporate welfare and cronyist practices in Springfield.
Jackson was nominated at the Libertarian Party of Illinois state convention on March 3. Due to Illinois’ strict ballot access laws, the party’s three gubernatorial candidates and twenty-three other candidates were not eligible to participate in yesterday’s primary elections. The Libertarian Party of Illinois is currently only a recognized party in McLean County, as a result of presidential candidate Gary Johnson’s performance there in 2016.
Jackson is running with Lieutenant Gubernatorial candidate Sanj Mohip.
