Blago's Ouster: More Reaction

Attorney General Lisa Madigan said she's committed to moving Illinois beyond "this sad chapter" and she pledged to work with Quinn to restore people's trust in government.

Illinois Comptroller Dan Hynes said he supported the state Senate's decision to remove Rod Blagojevich from office.

State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias said Thursday's actions mark a "new beginning" and that the state now has a governor who values "collaboration over combativeness."

Shortly after Quinn took the oath of office, Secretary of State Jesse White congratulated him.
