Gov. Pat Quinn to make announcement about Illinois Lottery today

| No Comments

Gov. Pat Quinn will step to the podium at 3 p.m. today at the James R. Thompson State of Illinois Center to make a much-anticipated announcement about the private management contract for the Illinois Lottery. One of three options is possible. He could select the Northstar Lottery Group. He could go with the Camelot Group. Or Quinn could opt to start the process over and bid the contract again. Some believe the third option is the least likely, but no one has necessarily ruled out the possibility Quinn could ask for a do-over. Of the two remaining finalists, neither is a sure bet. And no matter which he selects, Quinn is still going to have to deal with all the questions that have been raised over the course of the several weeks this controversial bid process has played out. Stay tuned.
