SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Key campaign strategists for Gov. Pat Quinn say they’re focusing on turnout by “sporadic” Democratic voters in the final days before Tuesday’s election.

The operatives spoke to reporters in a conference call Friday. Campaign field director Nellie Sires (SYRZ’) says they are confident Quinn will be helped by early and mail-in votes. They say the campaign also will be encouraging trips to the polls by Democrats who don’t faithfully show up every election cycle.

Campaign manager Lou Bertuca (bur-TOO-kuh) says Republican challenger Bruce Rauner (ROW’-nur) has raised more money but that Quinn’s team has collected enough to get his message out “the old-fashioned way.”

Rauner’s political director Sarah Clamp responded that their campaign is confident in its ground game and is hitting its own targets for early and absentee votes.
