State of State a campaign kickoff?
Quinn says Illinois has moved forward
Gov. Pat Quinn gave his annual State of the State address Wednesday, but area lawmakers – Democrats and Republicans – say it resembled a campaign speech.
"It seemed like an election kickoff," said state Sen. Mike Jacobs, D-East Moline, who represents Whiteside County. "The [governor's] race is becoming tighter. Let's quit the politics. Unfortunately, the state of campaigns is that they're perpetual."
Two prominent Democrats, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and former Obama Chief of Staff Bill Daley, are mentioned as possible opponents to Quinn in next year's Democratic primary.
