Governor Quinn is hitting the television airwaves with a new, positive campaign ad called "Comeback." The ad touts Quinn's efforts to lead the state out of tough economic times, even when he had to do it alone.
But Quinn's move to block lawmakers' pay was deemed unconstitutional and a judge ordered the state to pay up. Quinn also touts improved job numbers in his ad. At the height of the recession, Illinois' jobless rate topped eleven-percent and more than 750-thousand people were unemployed. Even though that looks like a comeback, critics will argue that point down, considering Illinois' unemployment rate sits at seven-point-one-percent. That means more than 460-thousand people are still without work.
