* Text from a Downstate legislator last night at 7:50 pm…
I’ve seen three Pat Quinn commercials tonight.
He just won’t. go. away.
Soon after it was clear he’d lost the Democratic attorney general race, former Gov. Pat Quinn didn’t say he would run for office again.
Quinn also didn’t say he won’t run for office again.
“I’m never going to quit,” he told reporters Tuesday night. “I believe in petition passing. I believe in passing referendums.
“I really like the idea of having more referendums on issues that involve jobs and ethics in government and advancing workers’ rights and so on,” said Quinn, 69. “So, I’ll probably focus a little more on petition and referendum. I’ve been doing that for quite a while, and I plan to keep on doing that until I don’t have any breath.”
Quinn’s unsuccessful attorney general bid means the only statewide office he hasn’t sought is state comptroller.
Watch out, Susana!
* The Question: What do you think Quinn will run for next? Don’t forget to explain and snark is allowed.
