Presidential candidates making stops in Illinois


More candidates for president are making stops in Illinois as they make a final push before a Tuesday primary that could make or break some campaigns.

Republicans Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic candidate U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders have events Friday.

Cruz will address a closed-door, big-dollar Illinois Republican Party fundraiser at a Chicago hotel and a GOP dinner in Rolling Meadows.

Trump is holding a rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago that's expected to draw thousands of protesters.

Sanders will be at a high school in the Chicago suburb of Summit. He also released three new TV ads on Friday.

Sanders' rival for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton, was in Vernon Hills on Thursday.

There are 69 delegates at stake in Illinois' Republican primary, while Democrats will award 182 delegates.
