Simon will not run again for lieutenant governor
(MCT) — Democrat Sheila Simon found out what so many before her have experienced: there’s just not much for Illinois’ lieutenant governor to do. So on Wednesday, she announced she won’t seek re-election and will run for a new office that will allow her to have a “greater impact.”
The move leaves Gov. Pat Quinn without a running mate for the 2014 election and could lead to a game of political musical chairs as would-be candidates for statewide office wait to see which positions open up depending on who else decides to run for governor.
