Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer and the unofficial beginning of a 2014 Illinois campaign season that features a full list of contests ranging from the U.S. Senate and governor's seat to Congress, the state legislature and county offices.
Candidates will hit parade routes across the state Monday, and Tuesday marks the first day Democratic and Republican contenders can seek voter signatures on candidacy petitions to appear on the March 18 primary ballot.
Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is seeking re-election to the post he narrowly won in 2010 after being elevated to the job a year earlier due to the impeachment of imprisoned ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Quinn is being challenged by Bill Daley, the former White House chief of staff and son and brother to formerChicago mayors.
