Illinois Primary: Local Races Getting Big Endorsements

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are campaigning hard in Illinois, Clinton’s home state, which holds its primary today.

Meanwhile, local races are also in the spotlight. Grammy-winning singer John Legend made an endorsement in the Cook County state’s attorney race and even President Obama endorsed a candidate running for the Illinois House.

This comes after the cancellation of Donald Trump’s rally in Chicago last week. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson talks Illinois with Niala Boodhoo, host of “The 21st” at WILL, Illinois Public Media.
