The gubernatorial candidates went head-to-head before the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board on Tuesday and exploded into heated exchanges over education, ethics, and other major issues.

Democratic Governor Pat Quinn, and his running mate Paul Vallas, squared-off against Republican Bruce Rauner and his running mate, Evelyn Sanguinetti.

Even though they were speaking within the hallowed, oak-paneled walls of the Chicago Tribune Editorial board room, Gov. Quinn and Rauner took off the gloves and waged a bare-knuckled political dog-fight today. Quinn accused Rauner of being a Plutocrat while Rauner alleged that Quinn of being a patronage hack.

The board will meet over the next few weeks and come up with a recommendation on who they will endorse.
