Quinn's Mom Warns: Don't Work Too Much

AP -- Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn's mother has some advice for her son, who could become Illinois' next governor by day's end.

Eileen Quinn says her advice to her son was to not work 24 hours a day. She acknowledged that her son is unlikely to listen to her.

Quinn's mother was at the state Capitol with other family members on Thursday as the Illinois Senate prepared to vote on whether to oust Gov. Rod Blagojevich from office.

If her son is elevated, Eileen Quinn says he'd have a "deep concern" for the needs of the people of the state. She calls her 60-year-old son a "very capable person" who -- with prayers and help -- would achieve his purpose.
