Gov. Pat Quinn says the best way to campaign for the 2014 election is to do his job.

The Chicago Democrat wouldn't say much Tuesday about the fact that potential Republican rival Bruce Rauner has put about $1.25 million of his own money into the four-way GOP primary.

Quinn told reporters Tuesday that money has to be raised to get the message out. But he says that after he wins the primary, he looks forward to running against whoever the Republican candidate is.

Quinn anticipates that November's election will be a "robust contest of ideas."

Rauner is a venture capitalist who filed petition signatures for a ballot position Monday. He also released three years of tax returns that show he reported more than $53 million in income last year.
