The numbers look bad for Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn.
Illinois has remained in lousy shape throughout Quinn's five years in office.

One of the Republicans running for Illinois governor had a very good year in 2012. Bruce Rauner released his tax returns Monday, and says he made more than $53 million.
Rauner's 2012 tax returns show he and his wife made almost all of their money on interest, capital gains, and real estate.
The line on his tax form for W-2s, where most people report "wages, salaries, (and) tips," shows $0.
