Governor Pat Quinn confirms he's running for state's top office in 2010. Quinn told the Chicago Sun Times that he had no reason not to run. Quinn says stabilizing the ship of Illinois is necessary and he thinks he's done "a decent job of turning a page in an unhappy chapter in the state's history."

Quinn replaced Rod Blagojevich who was removed from office last month and faces federal corruption charges.
