The Land of Lincoln will be holding primary elections tomorrow, Tuesday, March 18. Among the most important contests is the
GOP gubernatorial nomination race. Democrat Pat Quinn is one the more vulnerable incumbent governors up for re-election
this cycle, and a competitive field of Republicans is on the ballot for the right to challenge him.
Businessman Bruce Rauner, who has peppered the airways for months with ads paid for largely from his own wealth, staked out
of sizeable lead in the polls over Christmas and into the new year. However, state Senators Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady are hoping
he peaked too soon. That hope may not be born out tomorrow, though, because the latest WeAreAmerica poll released just
today shows Rauner maintaining double-digit leads over both Illinois legislators.
Polls open early in Illinois tomorrow. Polling hours are from 6 AM local time until 7 PM tomorrow evening. Check back
