Democratic candidates hit area churches Sunday
It was a politically religious Labor Day Sunday with Democratic candidate for Governor Bill Daley and incumbent Democrat Pat Quinn both attending services in predominantly black churches on Chicago’s South Side.
Governor Quinn, took a narrow message to fellowship missionary Baptist, to talk about raising the state minimum wage above the current $8.25 per hour.
Inside St. Sabina, the always lively mass was punctuated by Bill Daley’s presence in the pews. He didn’t talk to the congregation but he did talk to reporters outside. Daley took a challengers’ aim at the governor holding paychecks from state legislators until they resolve the pension crisis.
WGN’s Sean Lewis has the details.
