Kennedy campaigns in Marion

Posted: Updated:

MARION -- Democrat Chris Kennedy tours southern Illinois, pitching his campaign for governor.

One of Chris Kennedy's stops Saturday was at Pookie's in Marion. The Democratic candidate also stopped in East St. Louis and Cairo.

Kennedy spent the day meeting voters, shaking hands and introducing himself and his recently-named running mate Ra Joy.

"It's not about Democrat ideas or Republican ideas, it's rallying support for ideas that can move our state forward and that's what we urgently need," Joy said.

"If you want the state to have great education, if you want kids to remain here, if you want great outcomes for our economy, job creation, you ought to back Kennedy and Joy," Kennedy said.

Kennedy faces a crowded field for the Democratic nomination, all trying to unseat Republican incumbent Bruce Rauner.
