* The setup…
Illinois is changing the way political parties select their candidates for lieutenant governor.
Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation on Saturday that requires candidates of the same party to be nominated jointly instead of letting voters pick each nominee separately.
Under the new law, a gubernatorial candidate would select a running mate for the primary election. Voters would either support the pair or reject them over a different team.
* The Question: If both major party gubernatorial candidates could start all over and choose their own running mates from the get-go, whom should they have picked? Explain.
