COPY-Illinois governor hopefuls to meet for 2nd debate

CHICAGO (AP) - Republican Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur) and Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn will debate for a second time as they battle to become Illinois' next governor.

The candidates are scheduled to meet Tuesday night at Chicago's DuSable Museum of African American History. The debate is sponsored by the Chicago Urban League and the Business Leadership Council. It's expected to focus on issues important to African American voters.

Black voters in Chicago and its suburbs have been credited with helping Quinn to a narrow victory in 2010. Rauner has been aggressively trying to win over those voters in advance of the Nov. 4 election.

Quinn, of Chicago, is seeking his second full term. Rauner is a Winnetka businessman and first-time candidate.

Tuesday's debate will be broadcast on WBBM television and radio.
