It's Democrat Day at the state fair. That means Democratic politicians from hundreds of blue districts will come out and enjoy the festivities hosted by Governor Pat Quinn. Tractor pulls and harness racing are just a few of the day's events. But Democratic Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon will be one of the highlights of the day.
She'll show off her musical talents as she plays the banjo with her upbeat blues band "Loose Gravel." That show will start at 4 p.m. in the Miller Lite tent.
