* Meanwhile, here’s a press release from the Democratic Governors Association…
“Pat Quinn is a Street Fighter”
On “The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd” this morning, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Carol Marin said that Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is a “street fighter,” who Republicans underestimate at their own peril. She went on to say “he is as much an outsider” as Billionaire Bruce Rauner. The truth is that Rauner is just a typical, uber-rich, right-wing politician who wants to slash the minimum wage, gut education and public safety, and cut taxes for the wealthiest at the expense of the middle class.

MARIN: It’s easy to underestimate Pat Quinn.
TODD: A lot of Democrats have done that for years.
MARIN: A lot of them have, and to their peril. I mean, he is as much an outsider as Bruce Rauner, the Republican, is casting himself as. Pat Quinn is a street fighter. He may operatee out of a pocket protector than out of a massive computer bank but he is going to give this race a real fight, whoever is the nominee on the Republican side.
