CHICAGO (AP) The GOP candidates for governor are spending the weekend working hard to lock up more votes with just days to go before the Tuesday's primary.

State Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard both marched in the Naperville St. Patrick's Day parade on Saturday. Brady later marched in a Palatine parade.

Dillard's spokesman says the campaign is focused on getting votes in the traditional Republican stronghold of DuPage County.

Brady says he's not taking any votes for granted. He says he's been out reminding voters that he's a 'reliable Republican.'

Bruce Rauner is on a bus tour in southern Illinois. His spokesman describes the effort as 'spending the next few days crisscrossing the state.'

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford (ROOTH'-ur-furd) tweeted that he's participating in multiple statewide conference calls with supporters.
