CHICAGO (AP) _ Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican Bruce Rauner are campaigning at Chicago churches in advance of Election Day.

Quinn started his day at a South Side church where he continued his push to increase Illinois’ minimum wage. He’s scheduled to make stops at several more Chicago churches. Rauner also will visit a South Side Chicago church before heading to East Alton, Peoria and Hickory Hills.

The stops are part of a busy final stretch of campaigning before Tuesday.

The candidates are getting some high-profile help as they travel statewide.

First lady Michelle Obama rallied Quinn supporters in Moline on Saturday.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will join Rauner in East Alton on Sunday and former Illinois GOP Gov. Jim Edgar will appear with him at stops across Illinois Monday.
