"Thank you to Jim and Tely Nagle, owners of The Drake Hotel in Oak Brook, for hosting Cindy and I at a wonderful impromptu breakfast alongside community leaders," the post read. "Your business is absolutely wonderful, and we look forward to working with you in making Illinois a better place for businesses to operate!"


Bailey also published a tweet on the same day detailing his recent voter reach-out efforts.


"My team and I had a great time working the Belmont train station platforms yesterday morning!" the tweet read. "We are connecting with voters in every place possible to Get Out The Vote!"


During their last debate on Oct. 18, Bailey and his Democratic challenger, incumbent Gov. J.B. Pritzker, sparred over whether or not children should be able to consent to gender-affirming treatment from medical professionals, Prairie State Wire reported.


"Look, I think doctors, parents and those kids are working together to determine what's best for them," Pritzker said. "I think our hospitals, especially Lurie, which is one of the great children's hospitals in the entire nation are very responsible about these things. But look, I stand up for the rights of our LGBTQ community to make decisions for themselves and it is true that people who feel themselves to be transgender early on ought to talk to a doctor, ought to work with their parents to figure out what's the right thing for them."


Bailey responded.


"You believe that children at any age can make whatever decision for their health that they want to make?" Bailey asked Pritzker in response. "I believe parents have the best interests in mind for their children, and parents should be making that decision, not doctors or teachers or governors."
