Former President Barack Obama in Chicago today for J.B. Pritzker, Kwame Raoul and other Democrats

Former President Barack Obama will be in Chicago today in a last-minute, high-profile appeal to voters on behalf of Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker and the party’s other top hopefuls.

The former home-state president’s visit is meant to provide a closing statement for Democrats across the ballot in Illinois — including Pritzker, in his race against Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Obama also recently cut an 11th-hour radio ad for Democratic attorney general hopeful Kwame Raoul for his contest against Erika Harold of Urbana. Democratic hopefuls for big suburban congressional races are planning to be with the former president, too.

A 3 p.m. rally at the UIC Pavilion caps a flurry of activity from high-profile politicians in the area during the campaign’s closing days, an indicator of the national and state importance in Illinois’ top races.
