Governor J. B. Pritzker acknowledged Friday that his wife and daughter were in Florida before she moved to the Illinois Home Stay Order in March and that she had recently returned to Chicago.

He said that he was "very private and very reserved" about his family as there are threats to my safety and his safety.

You guys saw people standing outside the Thompson Center and outside the Capitol in Springfield, I mean, hating the signs that personally refer to me and suggest, if not say, but the possibility of violence. ", said.

On April 29, Pritzker unexpectedly answered a question regarding a patch dot report that his wife and family had gone to Florida amid governor's orders to stay home.

“My official duties have nothing to do with my family. So I am not going to answer that question. This is unfair and I find it condemnable, ”he said of his family's stories.

That response sparked opposition from Republican and right-wing groups that the Democratic governor's own wife Pritzker's stay at home was not complying, though Pritzker did not impose a one-time travel ban on residents.

"If your family can't even pay attention to the orientation of their own living order, how do you expect Illinois voters to do it?" A May 4 email from the Republican National Committee on the matter stated: "Governor Pritzker cannot stand the heat."

Pritzker said on Friday that he expected an unnamed Republican super-political action committee to "promote these kinds of stories about my family so that they stop doing so because they endanger my children and my family Are. "

But he also admitted that his family had recently left Florida, where he had been living since at least early March, before an order to stay at his home was issued. He owns an equestrian farm there.

Pritzker owns a horse farm in Racine, Wisconsin, and indicated that his family was there.

"I would only say that we have a working farm. They are there now. There are animals in that farm, which is a necessary task of taking care of the animals in a farm, so that is what they are doing." "

A spokesman for Pritzker later clarified that the family is at their home in Chicago and has visited the farm, but has not lived there.
