The Cook County Democratic party is expected to endorse Governor Pat Quinn in the 2014 election. The party's township and ward committeemen are meeting Friday to slate candidates. Quinn told the group he's worked to improve the economy, clean up government and pass a capital construction program that created jobs. But he says there's more to do. Quinn also said the party was a big help in his 2010 victory, and predicted another tough race in 2014. Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley is challenging Quinn in the primary, but didn't attend. He has said he expects the county party, which endorsed Quinn in 2010, to do so again. The committeemen will vote on endorsements in a closed session after hearing from candidates for other offices.
