Pat Quinn Skips South Side Event, Bruce Rauner Impresses

Governor Pat Quinn skipped out on an important south side event yesterday, while Bruce Rauner was there to tell the story of being 'in it together'.  Charles Thomas from ABC7 has more:
Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner campaigned Monday in what is traditionally Democratic territory on Chicago's South Side at a forum at Chicago State University.

The wealthy north shore Republican promised the south and west side ministers, business owners and activists that if elected governor, he would help turnaround struggling African-American neighborhoods 

"We're all in this together," said Rauner. "We all owe it to each other to help each other get a better life." 
The organizers found out during the event that Governor Pat Quinn would not be there.
A Quinn campaign spokeswoman told ABC7 that, "the governor had tentative plans to attend the event but is ill with the flu." She further said his illness is not serious and that he should be back at work soon.
"If I were the Governor I would have been here. It's a significant enough group," said State Representative Ken Dunkin.
