Patrick Joseph "Pat" Quinn III (born December 16, 1948) is the 41st and current Governor of Illinois. He is a member of the Democratic Party. Previously elected three times to statewide office, Quinn was the sitting lieutenant governor and became governor on January 29, 2009, when the previous governor, Rod Blagojevich, was impeached and removed from office. Quinn was elected to the office during the 2010 gubernatorial election, narrowly defeating Republican Bill Brady to serve his first full term as Governor.
