STERLING – Bruce Rauner, the Republican candidate for governor, will be in Sterling this weekend as part of his statewide bus tour.

Rauner will be joined by former U.S. Rep. Bobby Schilling, R-Colona, for a public event at Candlelight Inn, 2907 N. Locust St. in Sterling, at 11:45 a.m. Sunday.

The event will be open to the public.

Rauner, a venture capitalist from Winnetka, is running against Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn.
