National Journal: Illinois Governor's Mansion Could "Flip" This Cycle

National Journal ranks the Governor's mansions most likely to 'flip' in 2014 and lo and behold, Illinois makes the top five.
Quinn's been tied or trailing in some of Democrats' own recent polling. That says it all about the unpopular governor, who could easily have lost his primary last winter had a top Democrat like Attorney General Lisa Madigan followed through on plans to run. As the party hammers Republican Bruce Rauner on his private equity firm's investment practices, more Illinois Democrats may come home to Quinn. But Rauner is better-funded than any recent Republican candidates in Illinois, and D.C. Democrats privately worry that Quinn's troubles could be a drag on some of their congressional candidates, especially downstate.
