Hardiman: Illinois deserves candidate who can `endure`

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

The man who's now the lone Democrat challenging Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn in the 2014 primary says he's staying in the race.

Tio Hardiman is the only candidate left after former White House Chief of Staff William Daley announced Monday that he's dropping out of the primary.

Hardiman is the former head of a Chicago anti-violence group CeaseFire.

In a statement, he says Daley's decision to drop out shows just how bad Illinois' political situation has become.

He adds Illinois residents "deserve a governor that reflects them" and who is prepared to "endure and not weaken."

Daley is set to discuss his decision during a news conference Tuesday.
