ROCKFORD – Illinois will be a key state to win Republican delegates tomorrow, and according to CBS polling, Senator Ted Cruz is within four points of front runner Donald Trump. Cruz's numbers have risen in Illinois over the past few weeks, and his campaign sees a chance to pick up delegates statewide. Trump is 20 points ahead in Florida, Kasich and Trump are tied in Ohio, so Illinois and Missouri become places for Cruz to compete for first place wins.

In Rockford, he was met with a hearty crowd at his first stop – photo via Ulysses Arn Facebook page:
