Illinois primary Tuesday

   Illinois voters are going to the polls Tuesday to choose a Republican challenger to Democratic Governor Pat Quinn.  Billionaire businessman Bruce Rauner is leading in the polls and fundraising heading into today's primary election against state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard.  

   The race has drawn intense interest from labor unions after Rauner said he would model his governorship after Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who championed anti-union legislation.  Dillard is seen by many as the more union-friendly alternative.

   Quinn isn't unchallenged for the Democratic nomination.  He's expected to win his party's primary over the lesser-known political activist Tio Hardiman.

   Besides nominees for Governor, voters will also choose party candidates for U.S. Senator, Lieutenant Governor, State Attorney General, Secretary of State, Comptroller, Treasurer, U.S. House members - All 18 Districts, State Senators in 19 districts, State Representatives in all 118 districts along with several judgeships, county and regional officials.   

   Polls are open from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A state senator from eastern Missouri is forgoing a re-election bid, potentially setting off a scramble among Republicans vying to replace him in the reliably GOP district.
   Republican Sen. Brian Nieves (nee-EH'-vehz), of Washington, withdrew Thursday after initially filing for re-election.
   One candidate, House Republican Dave Schatz, of Sullivan, had already filed to challenge Nieves. But with Nieves' exit, Republican House Speaker Tim Jones, of Eureka, is now also considering a run.
   Jones says he will take time next week to weigh his options. Nieves did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
   A potential primary could be an expensive contest. Schatz loaned his campaign $350,000, and Jones reports having $900,000 in his campaign account.
   The Senate district includes Franklin County and parts of western St. Louis County.
