Illinois Governor JB Pritzker visited Rock Island on Tuesday to campaign, and to support fellow Democratic candidate, Eric Sorensen.

He’s running for Congress in the state's 17th District.
Pritzker emphasized his -- and Sorensen's -- pro-choice position on abortion.

"All of us together, need to be every bit as focused and purposeful in guaranteeing the right to choose, as the radical right wing has been in trying to take it away. That means we need to elect Eric Sorenson to the United States Congress."

The governor and Sorensen's campaign stop was live-streamed, and should be available at JBPritzker.com/live
Sorensen is from Moline, and his Republican opponent is Esther Joy King from East Moline.
