Rauner Quinn Rallies


With just hours to go until election day, top candidates in Illinois are making one final push for votes. Illinois Democratic Governor Pat Quinn and Republican challenger, Bruce Rauner, both led rallies in the Quad Cities today, and across the state. 

At a rally in Moline, Rauner made fun of a Quinn commercial where the governor says "you know me."

Rauner was accompanied by his family, several local and statewide candidates, and former governor Jim Edgar.

Quinn told a rally of local democrats at the Quad City Airport his goal has always been to work for a strong economy, and jobs.

Jobs are the best way to help families and fight crime.

Backing him during his fly-around today were several union leaders and US Senator Dick Durbin. 

And both Quinn and Rauner stressed the importance of turnout tomorrow to help them win the election.
