The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative will be protesting the visit of a man the call a "pro-abortion candidate" from 4:30pm to 6:00pm. The group says it will hold-up pro-life signs and pray to show both Rauner and the Winnebago County Republican party that they will not support any candidate who holds pro-choice views.
They'll be joined by a left-leaning group called 'Illinois Freedom PAC' which will be protesting what they call the businessman's "Wall Street Values."
The fundraiser at Giovanni's is not open to the public or the media.
More details on the protests tonight on 'Eyewitness News Local at 5:00 and 6:00' on WTVO-17.
