The candidates in the race for Illinois governor are presenting contrasting views on the economic climate in Illinois.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn says manufacturing is up since he's been governor and notes auto manufacturing companies including Chrysler and Ford have increased jobs in recent years under his watch.

But Republican businessman Bruce Rauner says the state's regulations and taxes are stifling growth.

Quinn wants to extend the state's temporary tax increase which is set to expire next January. Rauner, meanwhile, supports an incremental rollback.
