Gov. Quinn Faces Difficult Politics Months Before Election

The outcome of this year’s legislative session poses political difficulties for Governor Pat Quinn.


Quinn took on the risk of supporting an extension of the state’s income tax increase, but since he was unable to muster the support of lawmakers, Quinn won’t get the benefit of additional revenue for state programs and services.


But Quinn is trying to turn the debate toward Republican challenger Bruce Rauner.


Quinn’s campaign says people know where the governor stands… but says Rauner has not offered any clear plan or proposal for how to manage the state’s finances, especially without billions in revenue from the tax hike.
