SPRINGFIELD - Tio Hardiman, a Hillside Democrat challenging Pat Quinn in the Democrat Primary says challenger in the March primary says the Governor's claims that "Illinois is making a comeback" don't add up.
Hardiman spoke following Quinn's State of the State address Wednesday and reacted to Quinn's statement that Illinois has improved since he took office.
Hardiman says unemployment is still too high and lawmakers' solution to a $100 billion pension shortfall faces several legal challenges. "How can you make a comeback when the numbers look so dismal?" said Hardiman.
