Quinn wins primary

Incumbent Democrat Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is the projected winner of the March 18 primary to run for re-election.

Quinn took an early lead over opponent Tio Hardiman after polls closed in Illinois.  He held 78% of all votes cast after more than 20% of precincts reported vote totals, around an hour after polls closed.

After more than 80% of all ballots were counted, Quinn’s lead was a margin of more than two to one.  At that time, Quinn had 73% of all votes cast versus Hardiman’s 21%.

Our sister station WGN-TV projected Quinn as the winner.
