Governor Quinn Goes To West Central Illinois with $9M in Hand and Leaves with Votes?

Governor Quinn went out to Spring Valley Illinois - out west on I-80 on the Illinois River in Bureau County to deliver a $9.5M grant to Mayor Walt Marini and the Spring Valley City Council.

Mayor Walt Marini has some coverage on his blog.
Yesterday, Governor Quinn came to town to announce that the city of Spring Valley will receive a $9.5 million grant to help repair the city’s wastewater treatment plant that was damaged by the April flood. 
Special thanks to the efforts from State Rep. Frank Mautino (D-Spring Valley), State Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Morris) who helped make this happen for Spring Valley. 
“The results of their efforts will provide a new wastewater treatment plant that will be constructed to safeguard the facility from future flooding and be designed to service our city for many years to come,” Marini said.
Interesting that there's both a Democrat State Representative and a Republican State Senator.  A bit of a swing district?  Wonder if that had anything to do with Quinn's decision to head to Spring Valley?  Can't hurt his re-election bid, right?
