All of the state polls taken in the past two weeks have shown that Rod Blagojevich has the lead... But the most recent poll found that Judy Baar Topinka was closing in... A few days ago she was only four points behind the governor. The green party candidate, Rich Whitney has been getting between seven and ten percent of Illinois voters support. A substantial number of people are voting for him because they're not pleased with Blagojevich or Topinka. Blagojevich was out trying to gather up last minute support in Chicago today. Topinka was up bright and early... She voted in riverside at 6am. It's anyone's guess who will win tonight. The polls close at seven o'clock so we will bring you results on the governor's race as soon as precincts start reporting.
