The daughter of former United States Sen. Paul Simon appears to be Gov. Pat Quinn‘s pick for lieutenant governor, Springfield sources tell Ward Room.

Simon, who has described her own chances of being a nominee "a long shot", is a former member of the Carbondale City Council and a member of Quinn’s government reform commission. She threw her hat into the ring ealier this month with a YouTube campaign video.
