Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Chicago Wednesday for a speaking event and joked that Pat Quinn is the "luckiest politician". According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
"Hillary Clinton knows Illinois, politics, luck — and Bill Daley.
And the former secretary of State joked Wednesday that all of that worked out quite well for Gov. Pat Quinn.
“He’s just been entered into the Guinness World Records Book as luckiest politician,” she quipped at a charity luncheon in Chicago, according to NBC5 Chicago.
Her remark came just one day after Daley dropped out of the governor’s race, leaving Quinn with no major Democratic Primary opposition. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan earlier took a pass on the race."
