CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Republican candidate for Illinois Attorney General Erika Harold says she won't be campaigning with President Trump when he visits southern Illinois on Saturday.

President Trump will be in Murphysboro to campaign for GOP Congressman Mike Bost.

Harold said Thursday she won't meet up with the president.

"We have previously scheduled activities in the suburbs -- campaign activities -- and so that's what I'll be doing,” she said.

Reporters also asked Harold if she would share with the public the presidential candidates she voted for in the past three elections.

"I will not share all of those votes because, as a private citizen, I think I believe in secret ballot,” she said.

Harold said she's "willing to highlight good on both sides of the aisle." 

In her speech to the City Club of Chicago, she made reference to President Obama and his embrace of the "fierce urgency of now."

Harold faces Democrat Kwame Raoul in the Nov. 6 election.
