CHICAGO (AP) -- Democrat Dan Hynes has conceded in the Illinois primary race for governor, saying he's throwing his support behind Gov. Pat Quinn despite what had often been a contentious battle between them.
Hynes says he called Quinn to congratulate him Thursday morning. Hynes urged people to support Quinn and dismissed their campaign strife as "a spirited discussion about our future."
Quinn had already declared victory, but Hynes had refused to concede the day after Tuesday's Illinois primary.
Hynes now says all of the votes have been counted and the people have spoken.
