MAYWOOD, Ill. Governor Rod Blagojevich (bluh-GOY'-uh-vitch) is talking to friendly church audiences today about one of his campaign positions -- a statewide ban on assault weapons.

Tuesday is Election Day. Blagojevich is being challenged in the Democratic primary by Edwin Eisendrath. But the governor says the visits are not campaign stops.

Blagojevich spoke to reporters after delivering his standard campaign speech at Proviso Baptist Church in Maywood. In the speech, the governor discussed being the son of working parents and said he wants to improve education and health care in Illinois.

He also urged worshippers to call their lawmakers to voice support for an assault weapons ban.

Blagojevich says he's just focusing on doing his job -- and part of that is stumping for a ban.

He's set to speak to two Chicago churches this afternoon.
