Paul Vallas tapped to be Governr Quinn’s running mate

Author: Editor

Gov. Pat Quinn named former Chicago Public Schools chief Paul Vallas as his running mate Friday in a political stunner that mystified African-American politicians and angered union leaders who derided Vallas as the “wrong” choice for the job.

Vallas, a $1,200-a-day state consultant until last summer who ran the city’s schools from 1995 to 2001 and narrowly lost the 2002 Democratic primary for governor, was a little-known finalist on Quinn’s short list of running-mate possibilities.
