Gov. Pat Quinn isn’t saying who he wants to be his running mate as the state Democratic Party gets ready to pick a lieutenant governor nominee. Quinn on Monday said he’s talked to House Speaker Michael Madigan about who he wants. The governor says he’s confident a good nominee will eventually be picked. The Democrats are looking to replace pawnbroker Scott Lee Cohen, who won the primary but quit the ticket amid questions about his past. The party’s state central committee will start the process of formally reviewing candidates this week and then vote March 27 on a pick. Copyright 2010 The Associated Press.
