Political candidates take the final step to four cities

DAVENPORT, Iowa and Moline, Ill. (KWQC) – With less than a day to go before the polls open for the midterm elections, candidates are making one final push to get their message across to Quad-Cities voters.

Gov. Kim Reynolds and Sen. Chuck Grassley, along with other Republican candidates for congressional and state seats, held a rally at Davenport Airport on Monday.

After losing Scott County in 2018, Reynolds hoped to strengthen his base in QC.

“Help us get us across the finish line,” Reynolds said. “So we can put Scott County on the hook to win this election.”

On the other hand, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Deidre Dejer and Senate candidate Mike Franken held a joint rally in Ames on Monday.

Over the weekend, DeJear encouraged voters in Muscatine County to go to the polls even if they think he won’t win the county.

“All of our stories are possible,” DeGeer said. “We are on the way to progress even in this election period. Even in this election period.”

Meanwhile, in Illinois, Senator Tammy Duckworth, along with candidates for the General Assembly, held a rally at the union hall of Local 145 in Moline.

Governor J.B. Pritzker was supposed to perform, but due to scheduling issues, he couldn’t make it. He made further stops in Springfield and Peoria on Monday.

Duckworth said Democrats at the federal and state levels have helped bring infrastructure money to Illinois.

“We weren’t buying those good middle class jobs here, we were bringing those union jobs here,” Duckworth said. “That’s why it’s so important to make sure we vote for everyone on this ticket.”

Across the aisle, Republican candidate Darren Bailey made a stop at Park Merrionette and Bourbonnais.

Back in Iowa, Grassley said those policies put in place by Democrats need to be changed.

“This election is about changing the Biden administration,” Grassley said. “Stop it by electing a Republican-led Congress.”

Polls in Iowa are open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Meanwhile, in Illinois, they are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m

Both states allow same-day voter registration.
