CHICAGO — Illinois voters cast their ballots on Tuesday in the primary election for the November governor’s race, but the results remained murky yesterday with Gov. Pat Quinn leading his Democratic challenger by a narrow margin while state Sen. Bill Brady led the Republican field by an even slimmer number.

With 99% of the vote counted late yesterday, Quinn led state Comptroller Dan Hynes by only about 7,000 votes, with 451,871 votes for Quinn and 444,779 for Hynes.
