* I’ve been chasing this rumor all week without success. I even reached out to Quinn the other day. Michael Sneed gets the scoop…
Sneed has learned former Gov. Patrick Quinn is tossing his hat back in the political ring.
He plans to run for Illinois attorney general.
“I want to be the lawyer for the people,” Quinn told Sneed in an interview Friday.
“And I intend to present my case for a primary bid next Friday to the Democratic Cook County Party,” he said.
“And I will come armed with a poll which which indicates I’d make a formidable contender,” he told Sneed.
And he dumps this on a late Friday afternoon? Weird.
Quinn had about $232K in his campaign account at the end of the third quarter.
