(Newser) – Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has eked out a narrow win over his Republican challenger. An AP analysis of uncounted votes from absentee and other ballots showed state Sen. Bill Brady won't be able to overcome the 19,400-vote lead Quinn held today with all precincts reporting. (Brady's still not ready to concede, notes the Tribune.)

"I think the people of Illinois know I won the election," Quinn said at a Chicago deli where he thanked people for voting. Exit polls showed Quinn received overwhelming support in the city of Chicago and had solid support among those from households with less than $100,000 income, labor union households, and those with a family member who had lost a job in the last two years.
