It ain't over till it's over. 

Governor Pat Quinn and his challenger in the Democratic primary are firing verbal shots at one another as they traverse the state in mad-dash last minute campaign style.

Quinn will make stops in Rockford, the Quad Cities, Peoria, Decatur and Marion today in a last minute push.

"I don't want the state to go backwards with name calling," the Governor said at an event in downtown Chicago this morning with Alderman Dick Mell by his side.  Quinn is referring to an often contentious primary season in which he and Hynes attacked each other on a daily basis.

Hynes, who's been emboldened by poll numbers showing a near dead-heat, met with construction workers this morning in Chiacgo's loop and said he's anxious for the results.

"Tuesday will be a good day for an election," he said.  "I've provided a good choice for the voters."

Meanwhile, Republican Bill Brady has stops in Peoria, Moline, Champaign, Marion and Chicago.
