The scoop from Washington

Gov. Quinn hit Los Angeles for fund-raiser; big Chicago reception Thursday.

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn made a quick trip to Los Angeles Friday for a fund-raiser, aiming at Hollywood cash. A Quinn operative told me he was in Los Angeles for about 24 hours for the funder at the home of producer Bob Teitel. About 100 folks attended the event, including Glee star--and Dolton native--Jane Lynch.

To note: Quinn has been a lackluster fund-raiser and is bolstering his war chest as he heads into re-election facing an almost certain 2014 Democratic primary battle with either Attorney General Lisa Madigan or former White House chief of staff Bill Daley. I posted earlier: on Thursday, Quinn headlines a fund-raiser at Loft 644, 644 N. Orleans in Chicago. The tickets for the Quinn Thursday event range from $100 to $1,000. Madigan holds a 3-to-1 fundraising lead over Quinn. Hollywood hat tips: Reel Chicago, Crain's Greg Hinz
