Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says he won't cut education funding in the difficult budget year ahead.
From St. Patrick's Day parades to statewide tours by plane, the candidates running for Illinois governor made their final appeals to voters ahead of this week's primary election.
State Sen. Kirk Dillard's campaign for Illinois governor is getting a boost from his onetime employer: Former Gov. Jim Edgar.
Former House Speaker W. Robert Blair II, who helped modernize the Illinois Legislature and swiftly established a legacy as a visionary unafraid to ruffle feathers, has died, his wife said Tuesday. He was 83.
Still, Quinn will have to demonstrate he's willing to be fiscally responsible in other areas, Edgar said.
"Governmentally, it's the right thing," Edgar said. "Politically, it will be a tough sell. You've got to show that you'll be tight with the buck as you can."
