CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois voters will get another chance to hear from one stage the views of the four Republicans running for governor.

WMAQ-TV in Chicago will host a candidate forum Tuesday evening at a University of Chicago hall.

Those expected to participate are state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady, businessman Bruce Rauner (ROW’-nur) and Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford (ROOTH’-ur-furd).

The debate is among several in the days ahead of the March 18 primary. Early voting has already started.

Organizers say the moderated event will take place in a round-table format. It’ll last an hour and then audience members will be allowed to ask questions.

Gov. Pat Quinn is seeking re-election. He faces one Democratic challenger, activist Tio Hardiman. Campaign officials say Quinn won’t participate in any debates ahead of March 18.
