Presidential candidates visiting Chicago suburbs

Posted by wlpo on March 10, 2016

CHICAGO (AP) – The Democratic presidential candidates will hold separate campaign events in Illinois ahead of the state’s primary.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will hold a rally Friday night at a high school in Summit. Sanders will talk about his plan for tuition-free public universities, ideas on combating climate change and making health insurance coverage universal.

Hillary Clinton will appear at an event in Vernon Hills Thursday. Her campaign organization says Clinton will discuss her plans to “break down the economic barriers that favor those at the top and build an economy that works for everyone.”

At least three of the four remaining Republican candidates have also scheduled Illinois stops in recent days.
