Obama rallies in Chicago for JB Pritzker

CHICAGO (AP) – Former President Barack Obama was in Chicago on Sunday to urge voters to turn out for governor candidate J.B. Pritzker and other Democrats.

Obama held a Get-Out-The-Vote rally Sunday afternoon at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He encouraged people to vote on Tuesday and to support the Democratic ticket.

Pritzker is trying to unseat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. Also at the event were attorney general candidate and state Sen. Kwame Raoul and congressional candidates Lauren Underwood and Sean Casten.

Raoul faces Republican Erika Harold. Casten is challenging GOP Rep. Peter Roskam and Underwood is up against Rep. Randy Hultgren.

Their races are among four Illinois seats that Democrats are targeting as the party tries to win control of the House.

Obama has been making stops across the U.S.
