Illinois voters who braved the cold during the nation's first 2010 primary elections don't know who they sent to the governor's race.

The election was expected to launch heated campaigns in President Barack Obama's home state, but it left Democrats and Republicans squabbling over virtually tied races.

Democrat Dan Hynes could provide some clarity Thursday when he makes an announcement about his bid against Gov. Pat Quinn, who is leading Hynes by only a few thousand votes.

Hynes wouldn't provide details ahead of the announcement. The state comptroller refused to concede after Tuesday's election, though Quinn's lead grew Wednesday as more ballots were counted. Quinn has already declared victory.

The top two Republicans are separated by just a few hundred votes.
