Many of Illinois' top Democrats met in Springfield Sunday to pick a slate of statewide candidates. Although several politicians had considered challenging Gov. Pat Quinn in next year's primary, they all backed off by the time of Sunday's meeting.
From the tone at Sunday's meeting, you'd never know a week before, Quinn was facing a tough primary fight. But then Bill Daley dropped out.
You'd also never know Quinn has spent months berating state lawmakers over guns and pensions.
You'd never know it because Quinn was unanimously endorsed for re-election.
