2010 Governor race: Illinois
Nov 4, 2010 — The AP called Gov. Pat Quinn the victor in Illinois after its analysis showed his nearly 20,000 vote lead in the governor's race was too much for opponent State Sen. Bill Brady to overcome.
Aug 17, 2010 — Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) has been found guilty on just 1 of 24 counts he was charged with. The judge says he will ask for a mistrial on the remaining charges; the government pledges to retry their case.
