Jobs and job loss remain a major issue in northern Illinois, and it's a hot campaign topic for those running for U.S. Senate.
Major General John Borling visited with Andy Gannon on 23 News This Morning. He says most of the manufacturing jobs lost in Rockford aren't coming back.
If elected senator, Borling says he will push for new ways to grow the economy with an emphasis on new sources of energy production.
The Senate primary is two months away.
