BLOOMINGTON — Republican Bill Brady isn't conceding in the extraordinarily tight race for Illinois governor against Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn.
Brady told reporters Wednesday in Bloomington that he believes he will win. He says he's going to wait for the official results after all of the absentee ballots are counted.
Quinn has predicted victory in a year that saw many other Democratic governors tossed out of office.
Brady is trailing Quinn by the thinnest of margins. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Quinn's lead was just more than 8,300 vote of the 3.6 million cast. Quinn has nearly 47 percent of the vote compared to 46 percent for Brady.
