Governor Is No-Show

More than 500 lawmakers, business leaders and other guests gathered for the breakfast in Springfield, but Governor Rod Blagojevich was a no-show.

A Blagojevich spokeswoman says he was in budget meetings and told organizers he couldn't make it. However, organizer Richard Stratton says having a breakfast in the
governor's honor is strange if the governor doesn't attend.

Stratton says he's been a member of the breakfast's planning committee for 40 years, and he says Blagojevich agreed to attend this year's event.
