Quinn Says He Respects Daley's Move To Quit Race
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says he respects William Daley's decision not to challenge him for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. The governor said a divisive primary would have only helped Republicans, "who want to take the state backward."
The decision leaves Quinn unchallenged in the primary next March. One of the four men contending for the Republican nomination, venture capitalist Bruce Rauner, says he's now "the only candidate able to offer a clean break from the failed policies coming out of Springfield." Rauner is vying with state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard for the GOP nomination.
