Do you have strong feelings about this year's upcoming presidential election? Many do – and we're giving you an open mic to say anything you want.
We're providing you with a political soap box—literally. Over the next two weeks we will be traveling around northern Illinois with one intention: to hear what you have to say about this year's presidential race.
Everyone has an opinion, and this year, those opinions seem to be stronger than ever. There are also people that have almost given up on the race, saying no matter who is elected, they won't be satisfied. Regardless of where you stand, we want to hear why you feel the way you do.
On October 28th, 13 News headed to Loves Park. On that same day the FBI announced it's reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton's email use.
13 News asked residents how they felt about the announcement. Here's some of what residents had to say:
"She shouldn't have hid all of that in the first place so I would not be voting for her," says Loves Park resident Sheryl Smith.
"Hillary Clinton, if she's indeed broke the law if they found her to be guilty of the law she should suffer like you or me or any mainstream American," says Loves Park resident Kara Owen-Brosouis. "The Clinton's are not, repeat, not above the law like you me or anyone else."
"That just makes me think Hillary Clinton has some problems, but I really have no idea if that's true or not," says Loves Park resident Nathan Rios.
"No I think what she does on her phone's her own business," says Loves Park resident Karen Johnson. "No one needs to know whats going on."
"She's been investigated time after time after time and it came up clean," says Loves Park resident Lowell Nafziger. "So I dont think I anticipate anything else coming,"
The soap box will travel to a different city every day. Here is the remaining calendar:
Monday, Oct. 31 - Machesney Park
Tuesday, Nov. 1 - Dixon
Wednesday, Nov. 2 - Roscoe
Thursday, Nov. 3 - Byron
Friday, Nov. 4 - Winnebago
Monday, Nov. 7 - Rockford
