Quinn Hires Chief Strategist for Re-Election Campaign
Gov. Pat Quinn is ramping up his re-election campaign. Saturday, he announced the hiring of a new chief strategist, Bill Hyers.
Hyers most recently managed Bill de Blasio's successful campaign for mayor of New York. In 2012, he managed President Obama's Pennsylvania campaign operation.
Quinn is seeking his second full term. He's expected to announce additional senior campaign staff in coming weeks. He faces Democrat Tio Hardiman of Hillside in the March 18 primary.
