Speaking at the Northwest Suburban GOP’s Lincoln day dinner Friday night in Rolling Meadows, Illinois Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said that he and Donald Trump are neck and neck heading into the Illinois primary on Tuesday and that Trump is the only person on the planet that Hillary Clinton can beat.

Cruz:

Illinois is a battleground. Listen Illinois is used to being neglected by Republicans, I recognize that. Y’all have the burden of living under the despotic, messed up, left wing Democrat rule.  Which means the men and women here you’re hardy, you’re principled, and you’re fighters. But Illinois is a state that matters in this primary. Right now in the state of Illinois Donald Trump and I are effectively tied, we’re neck and neck…The media wants Trump because he’s the one person on the face of the planet Hillary Clinton can beat.
