Labor unions don’t like Pat Quinn. Does it matter?

December 4, 2013

On Tuesday, the Illinois state legislature passed a bill slashing pensions  and angering unions. Gov.

But, the filing deadline for the governor's race passed on Monday -- so how much will Quinn's move actually hurt his chances at a second term next November?

I talked to Natasha Korecki of the Chicago Sun Times about what it all means for the governor’s 2014 reelection bid.
