In the final weeks of the campaign for Illinois governor before the Nov. 8 election, Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Republican challenger Darren Bailey are visiting voters in small towns, big cities and suburbs throughout Illinois.
From July 1 through Oct. 15, Pritzker and Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton had made 144 stops in 64 Illinois cities, making appearances at labor rallies, speaking with faith and equity leaders, and meeting with Democratic groups in various counties throughout the state.
Bailey, a state senator from downstate Xenia, and his running mate, Stephanie Trussell, had made 255 stops in 133 cities since the start of July. The Bailey campaign has organized frequent bus tours, attended county fairs and fundraising events, and met with local chapters of law enforcement, as well as religious and conservative action groups.
Notably, both Pritzker and Bailey visited the city of Chicago more than anywhere else, visiting the state’s most populous city 47 and 48 times, respectively.
Here’s a look at where the governor’s campaigns have made appearances from July 1 through Oct. 15.
