On Thursday Aug. 20 Presidential candidate Willie Wilson is preparing to shake hands and pose for selfies during his first appearance to the Illinois State Fair on Thursday for Democrats Day, sponsored by the Illinois Democratic Party. Wilson will begin his visit to the fair at the much-anticipated Democrat Day Rally at noon.
Wilson is fresh from his national tour to more than 30 U.S. cities where he has been meeting voters and gaining momentum for his “every man” campaign. He also visited Columbia, South Carolina, this week to speak with various stakeholders in an effort to solidify that state’s support.

Candidate Willie Wilson, who ran for mayor of Chicago this year, upsetting the incumbent mayor’s candidacy and causing a run-off election, is becoming widely known for his “every man” campaign which he says is inclusive of everyone. His top priorities are public safety, education, economic development, equal opportunities for all citizens, and installing national faith-based initiatives.
Wilson is a successful businessman and philanthropist whose rags-to-riches story of growing up poor in the South, to currently owning a $60 million medical supplies company, has inspired a legion of followers.
