Quinn, Rauner Square Off on Friday



    Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican Challenger Bruce Rauner will have their first joint public appearance since becoming opponents on Friday when they appear together at an event for the Illinois Education Association. 

    It's not a debate, but the two men have agreed to sit down together and answer questions in front of more than 1,200 teachers about their policy proposals. 

    The IEA represents 130,000 Illinois teachers. 

    It could be a tough day for both politicians. 

    The IEA is among a group of unions that are fighting in court Quinn's pension plan in court. 

    They're the same organization that endorsed Rauner's primary opponent Kirk Dillard.
