Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says he's raised about a quarter-million dollars in campaign funds for a run for the Governorship in 2010.
Quinn disclosed the figure in an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial board.
He says he sees ``no reason not to'' run for the office he took over from ousted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich in January.
Quinn could get a primary challenge next year from Attorney General Lisa Madigan.
A recent poll in Chicago put Madigan ahead of Quinn among prospective Democratic voters.
Madigan is ahead of Quinn in fund-raising as well...with three and a half million dollars in campaign funds in January.
