IL Democratic Slating Inspires Talk Of Party Unity
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has called for the party to band together and work as a ticket despite recent clashes among top Democrats.

The 23 state central committeemen unanimously voted to give the party's official endorsement.
Five of six candidates are unopposed in the Democratic primary. The meeting was set before former White House chief of staff Bill Daley dropped out of the gubernatorial race, predicting Quinn would lose. He was Quinn's top challenger.
