Effingham, Ill. (Springfield, Ill.) – The Democratic frontrunner in the race for Illinois governor says he regrets some of the things that he said to former Governor Rod Blagojevich, and he regrets some of the things that he didn’t say. J.B. Pritzker yesterday apologized for a 2008 conversation where talked about race, politics, and the process to replace then President-elect Obama.
Pritzker says he didn’t mean to offend African Americans when talking about who should replace Obama in the U.S. Senate. But Pritzker also couldn’t say if there are more taped conversations that will come out.
