Quinn Calls Off State Fair Political Rally On Governor's Day


Governor Pat Quinn is breaking with tradition… and eliminating the usual political rally on the Illinois State Fairgrounds for Governor’s Day next Wednesday. 

 

Quinn says the fair should be about families and fun, not politics.  He says the Democratic rally on the fairgrounds will feature live entertainment, not political speeches. 

 

The decision could help Quinn avoid uncomfortable encounters with fellow Democrats who are unhappy with the governor, although some of those same encounters could happen earlier in the day when the party convenes a meeting of county chairmen at the Crowne Plaza.
