Who really runs the show, the Dems' choice for Lt Gov: Quincy Mayor John Spring only gets Durbin money and paid staffers

But here's the thing: Simon, who teaches law school at Southern Illinois University's law school, was not on the original primary ballot. And she lost her last race (57% -43%), for Mayor of Carbondale, to Brad Cole. Cole finished 4th in the GOP's lite gov balloting. If that's any indication of how little clout Simon has downstate, Quinn gamble could be risky.
