Republican Bruce Rauner defeated Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn in President Obama’s adopted home state, dealing a huge blow to Democrats with the upset. The win may be an indicator of the extent of the president’s unpopularity, given that he campaigned in Illinois. Quinn rolled up a big margin in solidly blue Chicago, but Rauner, a businessman who spent $26 million of his own money on the race, kept it close in suburban Cook County and won most down-state counties. The victory means the GOP will regain the governor’s mansion after more than a decade out of power.
