9:07 pm
republican nominee for governor. and of those who did, more had a favorable view of him. today more know him but they're equally split of what they think of him. still, that doesn't mean quinn's viewed that much better. at the start of september, 53% approved of his. but the number who approve has risen to 30%. met with the tribune's editorial board today seeking an endorsement. it became a spirited debate between quinn and brady. one topic: a deal reached between the governor and the state's largest public employees union that protecting union jobs but seeks other savings. >> i went to a town meeting where anyone who worked for the state could come forward and ask me questions. >> what did you do -- a political endorsement session and almost before the sun sets,

9:09 pm
our polling shows cowen has 4%. he had 10% last time. >> okay. >> thank you. hours away from the big announcement at the white house, news coming rahm emanuel leaving his chief of staff position to run for chicago mayor. during a white house address tomorrow the announcement coming. he will return to chicago over the weekend. launch for campaign for mayor on monday. pete rouse will likely replace rahm emanuel for the time being. still ahead: the dream team falling apart? why some members of the rod blagojevich team want out. plus the people have spoken. big changes to construction plans after customer complaints. what a way to ease into fall. possibly 50s by the weekend. your forecast is coming up. - so, what do you think? - eh, 30 days -- max.
