The Republican candidate for Illinois governor is hoping one more visit by a national GOP figure will help sway voters before Election Day. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will make one more stop for Republican Illinois gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner on Sunday in Bethalto. 

The sometimes outspoken, and popular GOP governor will appear with Rauner at St. Louis Regional Airport for a rally Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm.  Christie has made several stops in Illinois during the campaign for governor as Rauner tries to unseat Democrat Pat Quinn.  The two have been nearly neck and neck in recent polls.  Christie is visiting a total of 13 states this weekend on behalf of Republican candidates around the country.
