There was no shaking hands at train stations, or early coffees.

After more than a year of daily events by fierce rivals Bruce Rauner and Gov. Pat Quinn — theday after the election was eerily quiet.

Late last night, Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf said nothing was scheduled for today.

“Focus now on transition and governing. Won’t rush that,” he said in an email.

Quinn had not conceded late Tuesday, but Rauner claimed victory after numerous news outlets projected the Republican had won statewide.

Quinn cited glitches in the city that had voters waiting in lines until the wee hours of the morning, just so they could vote. He wanted every vote counted, he said.
