CHICAGO (AP) - Early voting has started for Illinois’ March 18 primary but one Republican gubernatorial candidate says it’s not always a good idea to cast an early ballot.

State Sen. Kirk Dillard told reporters Wednesday after a debate that many issues could still bubble up that’ll change voters mind in the competitive race.

Dillard is locked in a four-way contest with Treasurer Dan Rutherford (ROOTH’-ur-furd), state Sen. Bill Brady and businessman Bruce Rauner (ROW’-nur). Rauner is leading in polls and fundraising.

All four candidates pushed early voting over the weekend with email reminders and phone calls.

Still, Dillard says revelations about candidates could pop up late in a campaign and they might want to wait until Election Day before making a final decision.

Early voting runs through March 15.
