Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to stop at a Chicago manufacturing plant to campaign for Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn.

Quinn's campaign says Clinton will discuss Illinois' economic "comeback" when he addresses workers, business and labor leaders today.

The economy has been a major issue in the race between Quinn and Republican businessman Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur).

Quinn notes Illinois' unemployment rate is at its lowest point in six years. Rauner says the rate is still among the highest in the nation.

Clinton is the latest Democratic heavy-hitter to stump for Quinn. President Barack Obama headlined a pro-Quinn rally Sunday. First lady Michelle Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton have also campaigned for Quinn.

Rauner's campaign says it's a sign Democrats are in "full rescue mode."
