CHICAGO (WLS) -- In the race for U.S. Senate in Illinois, two of the candidates have wildly different views on economic stimulus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

David Black is the Green Party nominee. He is a retired attorney whose platform focuses on universal health care, a $20 minimum wage, clean energy and cuts to military spending.
