WASHINGTON--Gov. Pat Quinn, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a contingent from the Illinois General Assembly are expected here this weekend for President Barack Obama's second inauguration. That's in addition to the Illinois congressional delegation.
Quinn on Saturday will attend the Illinois State Society Inaugural gala--he is an honorary chair of the event--and then moves on to the "Hard Hat Inaugural Ball."
On Monday, he attends a National Governors' Association breakfast before the inauguration, which he gets to watch with other governors from a spot on the platform in front of the Capitol. On Monday evening, Quinn will attend an Inaugural Ball.
Emanuel is hosting an after-party on Monday night at a downtown club; see details HERE.
