Dems vs. GOP Ticket

In the race for governor voters can choose from Democratic Governor Pat Quinn of Chicago and newly selected Lt. Governor Candidate Sheila Simon of Carbondale. On the Republican side there's Senator Bill Brady and Lt. Governor Nominee Jason Plumber. Both men are from downstate and are considered very conservative.

"There's not a lot of contrast between the two candidates for governor and their running mates. Ideologically they're very close," said Kent Redfield, UIS professor emeritus of political science.

Redfield’s comments were featured in a WICS-TV 20 report on March 29, 2010.
