CHICAGO (AP) - The four Republicans vying to be the GOP nominee for governor are getting ready for their next debate.
State Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, businessman Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur) and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford (ROOTH'-ur-furd) are scheduled to participate in Thursday evening's debate in Chicago.
It's hosted by the League of Women Voters of Illinois, WLS-TV and Univision.
Thursday's debate is the latest matchup for the four, who've been campaigning around the state ahead of the March 18 primary.
All four appeared at a debate earlier this month in Springfield where they discussed unions and pensions.
Gov. Pat Quinn, a Chicago Democrat, is seeking re-election. He faces one primary challenger, activist Tio Hardiman. Quinn's campaign says the Chicago Democrat won't participate in any debates ahead of the primary.
