Illinois gov primaries unresolved

Washington (CNN) – A day after Illinois voters went to the polls, the outcomes for the Democratic and Republican gubernatorial primaries remain unresolved.

On the Democratic side, Gov. Pat Quinn was leading state Comptroller Dan Hynes in a tight race, but Hynes had not conceded as of early Wednesday evening. He has scheduled an 11 a.m. ET news conference Thursday to "make an important announcement."

Later: Hynes concedes

On the Republican side, state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard are in a virtual tie with each candidate garnering roughly 20 percent of the votes cast in Tuesday's primary.

    Poor pathetic liberals. Always can't admit when your beaten. NObama will lose his seat, as a preview of him losing the White House in 2012.
