Critics Say Quinn Neglects Downstate Illinois

Frustrated Democrats have been talking about trying to find a Downstater to challenge Governor Pat Quinn in next year’s primary.


Quinn is already facing a challenge from fellow Chicagoan Bill Daley, and may also be challenged by Attorney General Lisa Madigan, another Chicago Democrat.


But Downstaters say Quinn has all but forgotten about them.


A Quinn spokesperson denies that the governor is neglecting Central and Southern Illinois.


Quinn will be announcing several state-funded construction projects Downstate today, with stops in East St. Louis, Marion, and one in Decatur scheduled for almost exactly the same time that Republican Kirk Dillard has a campaign stop there.
