Governor Quinn makes 3 stops after criticism


Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is making a series of stops across Illinois.
Monday's visits mark the second round of trips the governor's made following criticism that his frequent Chicago focus might draw a downstate challenger in the 2014 Democratic primary.
Quinn started the day welcoming the Stanley Cup to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum before heading to Bradley University in Peoria, where he announced a construction grant. Quinn is also scheduled to spend time talking about the construction grant Augustana College in Rock Island before going to Rockford, where he's expected to talk about a clean water initiative.
Quinn is facing a primary challenge from fellow Chicagoan Bill Daley.
Quinn's spokeswoman has said the governor was previously tied up in Springfield because of pension reform.
