A deadline to get term limits on the November ballot is looming for Bruce Rauner.

The Republican candidate needs to win in court by the end of the week to get that idea on the November ballot. Advocates for the change are making one of their final pushes to persuade the Supreme Court to overturn its decision.

The proposal would limit legislators to eight years in office and increase the number of votes needed to override a veto.

Rauner says he needs the court to act now. But democrats say the matter of term limits is unnecessary.
