DescriptionSneed has learned former Gov. Patrick Quinn is tossing his hat back in the political ring.

He plans to run for Illinois attorney general.

“I want to be the lawyer for the people,” Quinn told Sneed in an interview Friday.

“And I intend to present my case for a primary bid next Friday to the Democratic Cook County Party,” he said.

“And I will come armed with a poll which which indicates I’d make a formidable contender,” he told Sneed.

Quinn, who claims the statewide phone poll of 1,047 likely Democratic voters conducted this month by Public Policy Polling shows him leading six contenders vying to become the state’s top legal eagle, netting him an overall lead with 28 percent of the vote.

“We need a strong ticket to beat the policies of Trump and Rauner, and I’m hoping for the party’s support, which they have given to me in the past,” he said.

“I have been a zealous advocate for everyday people who live from paycheck to paycheck. And in this age of Trump and his hateful policies, we need someone from Illinois strong enough to take him on and make sure he not only obeys the law but doesn’t break the law.” Quinn said.
