    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared briefly in public with Gov. Pat Quinn Wednesday on behalf of his re-election campaign.

    Clinton stopped by a DePaul University bookstore with Quinn, bought a couple of coffees and mingled with students, but didn't discuss politics.

    The Park Ridge native and possible 2016 presidential contender headlined a private fundraiser for Quinn earlier in the day.

    She also delivered the keynote address at the AvaMed 2014 conference at McCormick Place and later in the evening, spoke to the Economic Club of Chicago.

    Clinton is campaigning for the election of a number of Democrats across the country in November.

    Clinton's appearance follows a Tuesday rally for Quinn headlined by first lady Michelle Obama in Chicago.

    Quinn is facing a tough re-election bid against Republican businessman Bruce Rauner.
