The Democratic governor of Illinois and Republican governor of Ohio on Sunday both said that their primary elections scheduled for Tuesday would go forward as planned in spite of the coronavirus outbreak.

Four states are voting on Tuesday -- Arizona, Florida, Illinois and Ohio.

Two other states that were scheduled to vote afterwards -- Georgia and Louisiana -- have postponed their primaries due to coronavirus.
