As of 11:30 pm incumbent Governor Patrick Quinn was on his way to an involuntary retirement at the hands of right wing billionaire Bruce Rauner. Quinn had counted on the support of the State's powerful public employee unions. The membership were angered by Quinn's pension cutting attacks on retirees. To make matters worse, Quinn chose Paul Valles as his running mate. This was a major blunder. Valles is hated by teachers. The union leadership did their best to rally the faithful, but the rank and file sat on their hands this time around.

Quinn has so far refused to concede.
