CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois’ gubernatorial candidates are focusing on the economy, with Gov. Pat Quinn touting his jobs record and Republican Bruce Rauner stopping at Chicago area businesses.

Quinn on Monday visited a Chicago technology company that received a $2.5 million state grant. Coyote Logistics plans to add 500 jobs in three years.

Quinn says more Illinoisans are working now than any time during his tenure.

Vice President Joe Biden was expected to appear with Quinn later at a rally in Rockford.

Rauner was scheduled to visit a Chicago steel company and suburban restaurant. He’s blasted Quinn on jobs, saying Illinois lags behind other states.

Lieutenant governor candidates also are campaigning.

Republican Evelyn Sanguinetti cast an early ballot in Wheaton. Democrat Paul Vallas was to visit Springfield to discuss raising the minimum wage.
