Why Daniel is running for governor
People across Illinois are hurting, and it’s time to be honest about why. For too long, the rich, special interests and political insiders have made decisions about us, without us. They have set up a system that benefits them, and the rest of us are paying the price.
Daniel isn’t a millionaire or part of any political machine. As a math professor and legislator, Daniel has spent his career finding solutions to complex problems.
The challenges facing Illinois are serious, but they are not unsolvable. This election is a chance to take control of our future. By embracing bold, progressive reform, and by giving everyone a seat at the table, we can honor our commitments and make real investments in our people and our neighborhoods.
The only thing more powerful than money and the machine is people, ready to take their state back. That’s what this campaign is about—it’s about us.
Updates from the campaign:
Trumpcare is back, and it’s crueler than ever. What’s worse? Trump’s “health care” plan has a good shot at becoming reality with wide support from Republicans. We cannot allow this bill to pass. Add your name if you stand with me in holding Trump and Republicans accountable. As you may have discovered, Trumpcare isn’t about

Daniel is fighting for an Illinois for all of us
Building an Illinois that works for all of us
Illinois needs a fair economy where all Illinoisans have the chance to prosper. This requires enacting protections for all residents, and ending special treatment of the ultra-wealthy.
Investing In People
People and jobs are leaving Illinois every day. Giving them a reason to stay means investing in the things that help Illinoisans flourish. Funding schools and healthcare, protecting the environment, and keeping communities safe—these all need to be priorities. Springfield must create financial stability, take care of residents, and invest in communities.
Respecting All Illinoisans
Protecting Illinois values and communities
Illinois’ diversity is what makes it a place of opportunity. Whenever communities are under attack, by discrimination or disinvestment, Illinois must fight back.
Fight money and the machine
Ensuring all Illinoisans have a seat at the table
The way government works in Illinois isn’t by accident. With unlimited amounts of money poured into campaigns, only the wealthy remain influential, and politicians only represent a portion of the population. This is why making a fundamental change in Illinois means going after both money and the machine.
