One Big Reason We'll See More of Gov. Pat Quinn in the Stateline

Latest polling shows incumbent Governor may be in the toughest fight of his political life.
ROCKFORD -- Why is Governor Quinn making his second visit to Rockford in less than a week?  Maybe he knows something pollsters know, which he that he is at the beginning of the political fight of his life -- one likely even more formidable than his razor thin victory over State Senator Bill Brady 4 years ago.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Illinois Voters shows Republican businessman Bruce Rauner picking up 43% of the vote to Quinn’s 40% in the race for Illinois Governor.  10% are undecided, while another 6% would prefer someone else.

The telephone poll of 750 likely Illinois voters on April 9 and 10 has a margin of error of 4% -- which means with election day a little less than seven months away, the race is a dead heat.

Quinn is in Rockford Monday to discuss the 'Welcome Home' state first-time homebuyer program.
