Simon Seeking "Other Opportunities" in 2014
Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon will not seek re-election next year, but she plans to explore "other opportunities" that will allow her to serve the people of Illinois.
Simon informed Gov. Pat Quinn of her decision in December. Political experts said the move could lead to Simon exploring a run for Attorney General, or another state office that would allow her to fundraise separately from Quinn.
Simon plans to make another announcement in the coming months about her future plans.
