CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Governor Rauner joined statewide Republican candidates on Monday night at a Get Out The Vote Rally.

A number of Republican candidates set the stage for Governor Rauner, who told those gathered Monday night, inside the Goodwin Hall of Business at Benedictine University, the election will determine the future of Illinois. 

"How DuPage County goes is how the state of Illinois goes. That's why we all need to get out there and vote," he said. 

Governor Rauner said everything is on the line and that's why everyone must cast a ballot.

"Everyone get out and vote," Rauner said. "Call your friends. Call your neighbors. Walk your neighborhood. Remind everyone to vote. If we get the turnout, we are going to win this, and we are going to win it...tomorrow guys. Better future for the state of Illinois."

Other Republicans including Evelyn Sanguinetti, Peter Roskam, and Erika Harold criticized House Speaker Michael Madigan and Rauner's opponent J.B. Pritzker saying Democrats will only take the state backwards. 

Before exiting the chance of four more years, Rauner called for lower taxes, more jobs, and the need for term limits on politicians.
