CHICAGO (WLS) — Candidates are out making their final push one day away from Election Day.

“Darren Bailey wants to divide Illinois by handing the state over to the far-right wing zealots who want to enact a hate-filled agenda,” Governor Pritzker said. “Let’s be very clear, in 2022, hate is on the ballot and hate has no place in the state of Illinois.”

“JB Pritzker and Lori Lightfoot, they have had four years to do anything, anything to solve any problems, all the problems that we have and instead they have spent the four years making more problems and creating more of a mess for Illinois, pushing more of our friends and families out of the state,” Bailey said.

Meanwhile, Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was in the area stumping for Republican candidates in various races.
