BLOOMINGTON - Illinois' candidates for U.S. Senate and governor will outline their views on state agricultural issues at a forum Wednesday afternoon.

The event, called the Illinois Agricultural Legislative Roundtable Candidate Forum, is being held on a farm outside of Bloomington, and was coordinated with the Illinois Farm Bureau.  The forum is expected to begin at 1:00 p.m.

Candidates expected to attend include Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, and his Republican challenger state Senator Jim Oberweis, and Democratic Governor Pat Quinn and his Republican challenger Bruce Rauner.

Each candidate will have about an hour to discuss their views on issues, but will not address each other directly.
