Quinn campaign spokeswoman Leslie Wertheimer confirmed Monday that Quinn was in Los Angeles for the fundraiser. She said a similar one was thrown in his honor in 2013.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported those in attendance included actor Joe Mantegna of CBS' "Criminal Minds."

Quinn has kept a low profile on the campaign trail so far. He faces one lesser-known Democratic challenger on March 18. Activist Tio Hardiman of suburban Hillside is running.

Four Republicans are running for Illinois governor. They are state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady, businessman Bruce Rauner and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford.
