( – On Sunday, Gov. J.B. Pritzker warned Democratic voters that if they did not vote for President Joe Biden or they voted for a third-party candidate, then their votes were in essence waster.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker, D-Ill., argued to CNN’s Dana Bash that Sundays were the only two options right now for the upcoming election. Bash continued by asking Pritzker to elaborate on this. 

Bash had also asked Pritzker whether independent candidate Kennedy could potentially be considered a threat to the President. In response, Pritzker argued that there was a lot of enthusiasm from Democrats across the state. 

Pritzker claimed that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. being on the U.S. ballot was going to show how this could affect the presidential race, even though the majority of people only considered President Biden and former President Trump to be possible candidates in the presidential race. Pritzker also pointed out that these two had a very different set of values. 

Bash however opposed these statements arguing that the governor was talking as if the U.S. election was a “binary choice” when in reality it was not. She added that currently there is a third party that they could vote for. 

Pritzker argued that he was not claiming that there were no other names on the ballot. Instead, the only real choice on the ballot according to him is President Biden. He continued by suggesting that perhaps when people voted in the election they would see that in reality there are only two choices.
