CHICAGO (CBS) — Governor Pat Quinn says his next—and second term—would be his last if he’s re-elected, because he’s long believed in term limits for top officials.

“I believe in term limits. I practised the petition drive in 1994. I gathered nearly half a million signatures with many others for term limits and at that time I thought executive statewide officials should have a term limit,” said Quinn.

On another issue, Quinn backed the state putting up $100 million for a Barack Obama presidential library if there is also a lot of private money too. He says such libraries can provide an economic boost to the state.
