SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn's mother has some advice for her son, who could become Illinois' next governor by day's end.
Eileen Quinn says her advice to her son was to not work 24 hours a day. She acknowledged that her son is unlikely to listen to her Quinn's mother was at the state Capitol with other family members on Thursday as the Illinois Senate prepared to vote on whether to oust Gov. Rod Blagojevich from office.
If Blagojevich is removed, Quinn would become governor.
If her son is elevated, Eileen Quinn says he'd have a "deep
concern" for the needs of the people of the state. She calls her
60-year-old son a "very capable person" who -- with prayers and
help -- would achieve his purpose.
