Illinois congressional candidates focus on jobs
CHICAGO – Candidates in Illinois' tight U.S. House races mostly focused on jobs Monday during various election-eve campaign stops, including a bus tour, a mill rally, a town hall meeting at a manufacturing plant and a show of solidarity with protesting workers.
Republican Rep. Bobby Schilling, a freshmen facing a tough challenge from Democrat Cheri Bustos, made the last stop Monday on his self-described "Bob's for Jobs" tour and planned a workers rally in west-central Illinois. Meanwhile, Bustos was set to meet with protesting workers on the verge of losing their jobs at the Sensata Technologies plant in Freeport.
"The election is about jobs," said Bustos campaign spokesman Arden Manning. "Cheri is very clear that she stands with the workers."
