JB Pritzker received 46.6% (783.59k votes) beating both Darren Bailey who had 27.07% (455.23k votes) and Richard Irvin who had 9.12% (153295 votes) in the overall count of votes in Illinois if the election were among these 3 candidates.
Darren Bailey wins 84 counties out of the counties in the state of Illinois to support his claims of his movement in the country. JB Pritzker won 15 counties and Joe Biden won just 2 counties in the state of Illinois.
These 10 counties play an important role in these primary elections. If a candidate, can get a sizable majority, it becomes very difficult to win majorities in the smaller counties with out voter out reach and increased voter participation in them.
