Jesse White endorses Quinn

December 17, 2009 (CHICAGO) On Thursday, Secretary of State Jesse White announced he's supporting Quinn in the Democratic primary.

"I've know Pat Quinn for over 30 years and I have always admired his commitment to duty, his honesty, his integrity," said White.

Quinn's main competition in the primary, state comptroller Dan Gynes, had asked white for his endorsement.

White says Quinn has performed well despite inheriting serious financial and other problems when he took over after Rod Blagojevich was removed from office.
