Illinois Democratic candidates for governor have one more shot to tear each other apart before the ridiculously early Feb. 2 primary commences.
Gov. Pat Quinn and Illinois Comptroller Dan Hynes, currently locked in a statistical dead-heat, are scheduled to debate Monday evening at Chicago's WTTW-TV.
The two have engaged in an increasingly contentious campaign with plenty of negative TV ads and public sniping.
Hynes criticizes Quinn over his handling of the state's financial crisis, and his role in an early prison release program.
Quinn says Hynes doesn't have a workable plan to fix the state's finances, and has employed criminals in his office.
Both men are campaigning on an income tax increase, but Hynes' plan would require a constitutional amendment to enact.
