Dems Not Automatically Rallying Around Quinn


Governor Pat Quinn isn't necessarily getting the automatic backing of Democrats heading into the 2014 election season. 

 

Quinn did receive a louder and longer ovation than primary challenger Bill Daley during the Democratic County Chairmen's brunch at the Crowne Plaza.  But that isn't necessarily tranlsating into endorsements.  Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon... who ran with Quinn in 2010  but decided to leave the ticket next year... says she is staying neutral in the race and focusing instead on her campaign for comptroller.

 

And Sangamon County Democratic Chair Doris Turner says the local party won't automatically get behind Quinn.  She says the governor and Daley will both have the chance to go through the party's endorsement process to see if they can win party backing.
