More candidates for president are making stops in Illinois as they make a final push before a Tuesday primary that could make or break some campaigns.

Trump is holding a rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago that's expected to draw thousands of protesters.

Sanders will be at a high school in the Chicago suburb of Summit. He also released three new TV ads on Friday.

Former President Bill Clinton will be in Peoria campaigning in the Democratic presidential primary for his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton's campaign says the former president will hold a get out the vote event on Friday in central Illinois ahead of the state's Tuesday primary. The campaign says Bill Clinton "will lay out Hillary Clinton's plan to raise wages and break down the barriers that hold too many Illinoisans back." He'll also promote early voting, which is available until Monday.

The event will be at the International Union of Operating Engineers.

Clinton faces Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is planning a campaign stop in the Chicago suburb of Summit on Friday night.

7:10 a.m.

As Republicans debated in Florida, Hillary Clinton was campaigning in Illinois and warning voters about the perils of loose talk.

Without mentioning Donald Trump by name, Clinton said Thursday night in Vernon Hills that "when you run for president, it matters what you say." She says people around the world "watch us so closely" and she notes that when she lost to Barack Obama in 2008, she endorsed him and later served as his secretary of state.

Clinton says she's been getting messages "from a lot of the leaders I know from around the world and their message basically is, 'What is happening?'"

Clinton says, "hopefully this is just a momentary lapse and that we will all come to our senses" and have an election based on ideas and who can get things done.
