In the final days of the 2018 elections, Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and Democratic nominee J.B. Pritzker are making their closing arguments.

National politicians like President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden were also in Illinois in the last week, mostly to stump for Congressional candidates as Democrats and Republicans vie for control of the U.S. House.

Daisy Contreras hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler and Brian Mackey, and guest Mike Riopell of the Chicago Tribune.
