Capitol Fax's reporting Governor Quinn's chosen Paul Vallus as his running mate.
Downstate's lost to Quinn. The African American vote's as solid for Quinn as it can get. Vallas's independence will play well with Progressives and Surburbanites disgruntled with Quinn's mismanagement. There's a benefit for not having been around Illinois for a while. He's an outsider now and that's what Quinn needs.
Quinn's made an excellant choice. He'll be formidable. Don't underestimate him.
