Potential Quinn challenger recommends nonpartisan contests
(MCT) — Bill Daley, who's pondering a Democratic challenge to Gov. Pat Quinn next year, said Tuesday that the state should explore replacing primary elections with nonpartisan contests like Chicago uses for mayor and City Council in which candidates who get more than half the vote win outright.
Daley, the son of a mayor who served 21 years and brother of another who served 22 years, also opened the door to term limits as a method to break partisan gridlock — an idea Quinn backed nearly 20 years ago in leading an unsuccessful petition drive.
