Republican front-runner Donald Trump on Sunday made his first return to Illinois since a protest-filled Chicago rally was canceled as candidates and their top surrogates fanned out across the state on a frenzied final weekend before Tuesday’s primary elections.
On the Democratic side, former President Bill Clinton visited Chicago-area African-American churches in support of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as did several supporting congressmen. Her rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, added a late night Monday rally in Chicago to his pre-primary day schedule.
Trump, meanwhile, found a more conducive location than Chicago for his brash and controversial rhetoric by going to the central Illinois community of Bloomington. Still, his airport-hangar rally was interrupted occasionally and the city’s newspaper, the Pantagraph, urged Republicans to vote for anyone but Trump, even though the paper doesn’t endorse candidates in primary elections.
Inside the rally, multiple pockets of protesters made themselves known, yelling “Dump Trump” as they were booed and escorted out by security. Some held colorful flags with peace signs, while others ripped up Trump signs and flashed T-shirts supporting Democrat Sanders.
