Candidates make final push before midterms

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - It's November 5th and do you know what that means?

We are less than 24 hours away from not hearing any political robocalls or social media pleas for another couple of years.

It also means one last push both nationwide and around the Stateline.

On Monday, President Trump made campaign stops in Ohio, Indiana, and Missouri: 3 states with tight Senate races. Election site 538 predicts Republicans have an 81% chance of retaining control of the Senate while Democrats have an 88% chance of taking over the majority in the House.

President Trump speaks 1-on-1 with Gray Television Washington Bureau Chief Jacqueline Policastro. Meantime former President Barack Obama spent the day in Virginia campaigning for Senator Tim Kaine. Kaine was the first elected official outside Illinois to support Obama's run for President. He was elected President 10 years ago Sunday.

In Rockford, both candidates for Illinois Attorney General and the 17th Congressional District talked with local reporters over the final days leading up to Tuesday's midterm election.
