Quinn Refuses To Concede Until Provisional Ballots Are Counted

Gov. Pat Quinn is not conceding his re-election bid to Republican Bruce Rauner.  Quinn told supporters Tuesday evening that there are outstanding votes to be counted and he doesn't "believe in throwing in the towel." 

With more than 90 percent of precincts reporting, Rauner led Quinn by about 4 percentage points. Rauner gave a victory speech outlining his goals for the state. However, Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson says there are a large number of votes in Chicago and Cook County to be counted, including provisional and mail ballots.

Rauner is a Winnetka venture capitalist who sought public office for the first time. Quinn is a Chicago Democrat who sought a second full term. It's one of the most competitive governor's races in the nation.
