Quinn Wins...and then goes to Manny's

We've posted about Manny's being a popular stop for politicians and that holds true for the most recent round of elections:
Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn today said he feels "elated" about his more than 19,500-vote lead, but did not call on Republican challenger Bill Brady to concede defeat.

"Who wouldn't be (elated)?" Quinn said while getting lunch at Manny's, a traditional photo op hangout for politicians. "I got elected governor of Illinois by the people of Illinois in a come-back campaign."

Damn I wish I was eating a Corned Beef on rye right now...
