(WSIL) -- The Democratic Governors Association is making the COVID-19 pandemic a central focus in the 2022 race for Governor. All four of the declared republicans running for the seat come under fire in the video.

It uses interviews with the three of the men to showcase their "anti-science" views on masks and vaccines.

State Senator Darren Bailey (R-Xenia)'s campaign released the following statement about the video:

"It is clear the Democratic Governors Association is terrified of Darren Bailey. They know J.B. is vulnerable, and they see our campaign as the top contender to defeat him next November. Pritzker has failed working families across the state and has been unable to keep communities safe. He is nothing but a mandate candidate who wants to unilaterally control private businesses, shut down churches and force children to wear masks. Darren built his family farm from the ground up and raised his family here; Illinois is home and worth fighting to restore. We are building a grassroots movement full of thousands of working Illinoisans to defeat J.B. next November, and no amount of money will stall our momentum."

The Illinois primary election is June 28, 2022.
