WASHINGTON — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, raised in north suburban Park Ridge, will be stumping for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, I’ve learned.
Quinn is locked in a tight race with GOP nominee Bruce Rauner. This comes as President Barack Obama hits Chicago on Thursday for Quinn, and first lady Michelle comes home on Oct. 7. Clinton, mulling a 2016 presidential run, does not need the headache of a GOP governor in Illinois if she makes her bid.

Clinton had been on the calendar for Oct. 8 — though the birth of her granddaughter on Friday may change her schedule.
