Billionaire businessman J.B. Pritzker has launched a bid for Illinois governor at a park facility in Chicago.

The Democrat's entry into the race raises financial stakes in what was already expected to be a costly and competitive fight to unseat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. 

Pritzker wasted little time in blasting the venture capitalist-turned-governor, even comparing him to President Donald Trump. Rauner has been at odds with the Democrat-controlled Legislature since he took office.

  Billionaire Chicago businessman J.B. Pritzker says he's still "seriously considering" running for Illinois governor in 2018. The Democrat released a statement Wednesday, after businessman Chris Kennedy announced he's seeking the Democratic nomination to try to unseat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. Kennedy is the son of Ethel and the late U.S. Sen. Robert Kennedy. Pritzker is the brother of Penny Pritzker, who served as Commerce Secretary under President Barack Obama.
