Live from Springfield, it's Monday night!

Well it doesn't have the same ring as the introduction to Saturday Night Live, but fresh off of his visit to S-N-L, renegade Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump will take on Springfield tonight.

For those hoping to catch tonight's Trump appearance and those preparing Springfield's Prairie Capital Convention for the event after a Fighting Illini basketball game yesterday, there's good news. Convention Center General Manager Brian Oaks says Trump's recent request for Secret Service protection won't come into play tonight.
