Lt. Gov. Simon Explains Decision Not To Run For Lt. Gov. Again

Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon says her decision not to run for re-election is a reflection of her personal ambition and career interests... not an indication that she thinks it would be a bad idea to run with Governor Pat Quinn next year. Simon announced Wednesday that she plans to run for a different office in 2014 rather than again serving as Quinn's running mate.


Appearing live on 970 WMAY's "Jim Leach Show," Simon says that she feels like she has accomplished some things as lieutenant governor, but believes she could do more in another office, even though she hasn't publicly decided on what office to seek. But Simon says that was the only basis for her decision, and insists it was not affected by Quinn's political prospects.
