Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is touting his record ahead of the primary election. He says he's abolished the death penalty, reformed the pension system, helped clear the way for same-sex marriage, and now he’s pushing for a minimum wage hike. Quinn says he hopes voters remember those things when they head to the polls on Tuesday.
He’s facing a primary challenge against Tio Hardiman, who is polling at 36-percent, even though he hasn't raised any money or done any advertising.
