Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's supporters in Illinois are in grass-roots mode. They're setting up phone banks and writing letters to newspaper editors, but the roots they're planting aren't in Illinois.
Polls show Kerry with a comfortable lead over President Bush in Illinois. So Kerry supporters are traveling to swing states like Iowa and Wisconsin to have a better chance at swaying the election.
Illinois Republicans hope that will give them a chance to make inroads in the state. They're sticking within the borders to get out the vote for Bush on Election Day.
