Illinois Governor Pat Quinn's re-election campaign is getting an out-of-state boost. The Chicago Democrat flew to Los Angeles on Friday for a fundraiser attended by actors and others in the movie industry. Quinn campaign spokeswoman Leslie Wertheimer confirms Quinn was in Los Angeles for the fundraiser. She said a similar one was thrown in his honor in 2013. Those in attendance included actor Joe Mantegna of CBS' ``Criminal Minds.'' Quinn has kept a low-profile on the campaign trail so far. He faces one lesser-known Democratic challenger on March 18. Activist Tio Hardiman of suburban Hillside is running. Four Republicans are running for Illinois governor. They are state Senators Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady, business man Bruce Rauner, and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford.
