Pat Quinn is, easily, one of the most hated governors in America, and that's despite the fact he has told Chicago Mayor and former Obama Administration strongman Rahm Emmanuel where to go on numerous occasions. The Land of Lincoln is suffering a budget crisis of epic proportions, Chicago's murder rate is skyrocketing, and the state's economy is in a virtual tailspin. Businessman Bruce Rauner, who won the GOP primary, looks to do for Illinois what Rick Scott did for Florida. In Rauner's case, he may have a much easier road to Springfield than Scott had to Tallahassee, thanks in large part to Quinn's own baggage. Democrats are desperate to hold the President's home state, and will pull out all the stops to win this. Republicans smell blood and are ready to do whatever it takes to reclaim the governor's mansion.
